Here’s a gratuitous snapshot of Morrissey standing alongside two blokes on First Avenue near East Seventh Street. Many thanks to East Villager Douglas Vicenzi for the photo. Anyone else spot him around the neighborhood?

Moz was last seen downtown in the high-profile role of Good Samaritan, after an elderly lady collapsed inside Strand Bookstore. He reportedly offered help and was deemed a hero in the press.

Here is the Ron English ‘All American Temper Tot’ on the Bowery Graffiti Wall

That was quick. The Bowery graffiti wall is already sheathed in its new mural. In a matter of hours yesterday, artist Ron English rolled on his wheat-paste creation to the year-long-stagnating wall at the corner of East Houston.

Touring the Creepy Abandoned Hospital Complex on Ellis Island [PHOTOS]

Creepy. Cold. Intense. Haunted. All apt adjectives to describe the unused section of Ellis Island designated as ruins. It is on the south side of this national park – straddling the state lines of New York and New Jersey – that a maze-like collection of twenty-nine buildings sits. Rotting away from the inside out. Indeed, […]

Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street. It was to be a place more approachable than the OG spot. Those plans ultimately hit a dead-end (F18 Gallery opened there instead), though, and owners Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von […]

Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]

After a Year of Inactivity, Ron English is the Next Artist to Paint the Bowery Graffiti Wall

The mobile boom was rolled into place beside the freshly-constructed Bowery graffiti wall early yesterday morning. In covering this slab for years, this is the surest signal that a change of the guard is in the cards. Indeed, the next entrant is already at bat to paint a mural here. Acclaimed street artist Ron English has […]

    I’m so sorry, but why does he come here? And why does he hang around? When he knows it makes things hard for LESiders. He had to sneak into the Lower East Side
    ‘just’ to read Bowery Boogie. It was just to see, just to see, all the things he knew Boogie had written about him. He had a good lay, good lay…
