Locals aren’t only worried about whether the streets and sidewalks are plowed in the aftermath of the Thunder Snow Storm.  What about the neighborhood playing fields?

Indeed, yesterday afternoon, we spotted a committed crew clearing the turf soccer field on Rivington Street ahead of a match on Sunday. And check out those seven-foot snowbanks along the fenced perimeter!  One shoveler told us that those embankments were not plowed.  Oh no. That’s four weeks of snow, hand shoveled by random players.

Rat Castle Condos on the Way to Upper Ludlow Street

It’s been a long time coming, but Rat Castle condos are finally at hand. Seems the developer unfurled a three-story banner and other plywood advertising at 179 Ludlow Street yesterday afternoon.

Man Badly Beaten on the Bowery Last Night

Just in case you needed additional evidence that the corner of Bowery and Rivington is devolving into violence, this should suffice. Yesterday evening at around 5:45, a man was beaten pretty badly outside the Bowery Mission.
