New York City

RIP Alt.Coffee: The end of an era

Last week I was back in NY and walking down Avenue A. I ran into Judy Bodor, wife of Nick, the owner of Alt.Coffee. She mentioned to me that Alt would be closing this week after nearly 12 years! The NY Times marks the passing in an article today.

Deanna Zandt on the Lower East Side

I had the opportunity to talk to Deanna Zandt while I was in NY. We talked about her upcoming move from the Lower East Side to the South Side of Williamsburg. (video link after the jump)

Quiet in this corner of the city

Without 60ft long articulated buses rumbling by, and no trains on the williamsburg or manhattan bridges, light traffic on both of those and the FDR drive, the Transit sStrike has made my corner of the city pretty quiet.

I could have walked it...

In case you didn't know it, we are on the brink of a transit strike here in NYC. The effects of which, in the last week before the Christmas and Chanukka Holiday season would be devastating on NYC residents and people who work here. Compound the holiday with the frigid weather, and it is a recipe for disaster. I've gotta say that I am typically pretty sympathetic to the municipal labor unions in their demands. For years under Giuliani they got the short end of the stick.
