Curbed scored renderings of 327 East Ninth Street, which will soon become a six-story, two-unit residential building. The space is currently a parking lot.

Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York spots some angry graffiti at the site of a closed bodega at Mott and Houston Streets. “We want our bodega. No more yuppies in Nolita.”

Jeremiah isn’t the only one sick of yuppies.
