Three Monkeys Irks Residents of 99 Rivington

Posted on: January 12th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Today’s adventures in urban etiquette signage bring us to the Three Monkeys at 99 Rivington Street, formerly known as Paul’s Boutique.  While covering the fire at 124 Ludlow last Friday afternoon, we noticed a handful of computer printouts Duct-taped to the windows and doors of the cheapy falafel joint.

Apparently some residents are none-too-pleased with the nighttime noise emanating from the establishment. Guess that’s their new two-for-one deal these days – buy a $3.65 sandwich and get a night of decibel delights on the house.  Talk about added value.

Anyway, be sure to take note of the exclamation point count in the letter!!!

All signs were removed later that day.
