LES Heritage Film Series Returns to Seward Park Library with “Desperately Seeking Susan”

Posted on: November 20th, 2012 at 11:19 am by

It’s the third Tuesday of November, so you know what that means. Yup. Time for another installment of the “LES Heritage Film Series: The 80s” at the Seward Park Library on East Broadway. Tonight kicks off another season of the  acclaimed program, with a special screening of cult classic Desperately Seeking Susan. Afterward, there will be a Q&A with director Susan Seidelman.

With the help of Madonna and Rosanna Arquette, Desperately Seeking Susan brought the East Village of the 1980s to the forefront, including prominent placement of Love Saves the Day. The toy shop shuttered in 2009 thanks to the recent wave of unrelenting gentrification.

Showtime is at 6:30 pm.

Clinton Street ‘Casita’ Tree Tunnel Uprooted for Good

The arboreal attraction (and known rat hangout) at the southeast corner of Clinton and Stanton Streets is officially kaput. That’s right, no more tree tunnel. A chainsaw crew arrived last week to chop and uproot the leaning line of trees comprising the overhang. This was a complete removal, unlike the trim of overgrowth that transpired […]

Delancey Street Gets its First LinkNYC Kiosk

Yesterday afternoon, the city unveiled the first LinkNYC pornhub kiosk for Delancey Street. It’s situated just east of the Bowery, where these things are multiplying faster than gizmo in a swimming pool. The 9-foot-6-inch unit is not yet active, though. LinkNYC stations have been criticized pretty much from the get-go. In league with the soulless […]
