This is a huge loss for the East Village, as Bob Arihood was oftentimes the first on the scene to report what the mainstream media doesn’t.  He chronicled the list of neighborhood characters, street fights, and was a huge champion of Ray and his eponymous Candy Store.

Bob Arihood was an inspiration to us all here at Bowery Boogie, and we miss him already.  Rest in peace, dude.
