The Day | Arrests During March Down Broadway

Occupy Wall Street, One Year Anniversary Weekend, S16 - Celebration, Foley Square, Jimmy McMillan, The Rent Is Too Damn High, with Vermin SupremeScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

Protests and celebrations marked the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street over the weekend, and continue to do so today (Gothamist is liveblogging the proceedings). Above, Jimmy McMillan made an appearance in Foley Square. You can see Scott Lynch’s photos of a march down Broadway in The Local’s Flickr pool. According to The Times, it appeared that at least 15 arrests were made during the march from Washington Square Park to Zuccotti Park.

The Local spotted icons and other effects being removed from Mary Help of Christians over the weekend. A worker said they were being relocated to Immaculate Conception, where Spanish-language masses are now being held. Late Friday, we reported that the church was cleared to be sold for $41 million, and evidence points to Douglas Steiner of Steiner Studios as its mystery buyer.

The Times reports that Tony Goldman, a real estate visionary who revitalized SoHo, died at 68. Freshness Mag remembers him as the proprietor of the Bowery Mural on Bowery and East Houston Street.

The Post reports that the owner of Body Evolutions has filed a counterclaim in response to his business partner’s previous allegations that he was hurting the business with his amorous advances. “Macagnone claims he refused to sleep with Linnell after they formed their business partnership, and adds they only had sex twice, according to the counterclaim.”

The Daily News notes that some 5,000 marchers took part in the New York Mexican Day Parade yesterday. We noticed Zaragoza got in on the action, with a pickup-truck float followed by a piñata party back at the deli.

The Daily News ranks East Village Thai as one of the city’s best practitioners of pad thai. “But, wow, can this cash-only restaurant cook a great Pad Thai that will only set you back $6.25 during lunch and $9.50 at dinner. The bean sprouts are crispy, the shrimp is plump, and both the flavor and portions are oversized.”

The New York Post drops into the just-opened exhibit, “Imagining the Low Line,” which reproduces the buzzy project in a disused trolley terminal. “A map of Manhattan’s unused underground spaces and flowing traffic patterns is projected onto the floor from a lighting fixture above. Beyond the map are storyboard panels depicting the site’s history and potential future.”
