The Day | From Pizzas to Paleo

First Avenue and East 12th StreetAnnie FairmanFirst Avenue at East 12th Street.

Good morning, East Village.

Pizza joints play musical chairs on East 14th Street, with the brown-papered Naked Pizza reportedly making way for the first branch of Carmine Street’s Joe’s Pizza.

Some belated silent nights recently for folks around Avenue B and East 12th Street, where the Department of Buildings finally hit the pause button on an apartment construction site which was making life generally miserable with its noise and vibrations. Here are the details of the violation, and a hearing on February 7th.

Remember Ruff Club, the dog spa on Avenue A? Turns out they’re screening possible canine guests for issues like “toy aggression” and inability to share. “We’re not trying to create a master race of dogs,” owner Danny Frost assured the New York Times.

Finally, if the well of inspiration ran dry on New Year resolutions, how about some unusual diet options? You needn’t stray far from the neighborhood to find raw food at Pure Food and Wine on Irving Place, or a paleo diet (cave-dweller goodies) at Hu Kitchen, a block from Union Square. Enjoy!
