Blue & Cream is again stirring the proverbial pot with its seasonal window display on East First Street, and many out there aren’t pleased. This time, it has nothing to do with pissing on the ashes of Mars Bar. Positioned in front of some Keith Haring “Radiant Baby” paper is this gilded Dolce & Gabbana Tommy Gun. Locked inside a glass case.

Our incensed informant notes, “Just one week after the Sandy Hook shooting — despicable.”

Readers, weigh in. Should Blue & Cream have removed this ornament from the window display in light of recent events?

Revived from the Dead, ‘Unforgettable’ Filming on Essex Street Today

The troubled police procedural Unforgettable is back in production as we speak, and will be filming scenes on the Lower East Side today.

Sam’s Spring Roll rocked the boat last December in its bid for the north store of 23 Essex Street. Nevertheless, it didn’t hinder the push to completion.

    Are you kidding me? The answer is no. No one should be outraged by this. The fact that the tragedy in Sandy Hook just happened should have nothing to do with this at all. How many guns have you seen on TV since the Sandy Hook shooting? Should all of those shows just no aired because of it? People love to overreact.

      Blue and Cream clearly saw the tone deaf error in judgement they made as they have removed the gun from the window. Great point though
