Old East Village Meets New
I took this photo a few blocks from where I live. I think it pretty well sums up the gentrification of the East Village, as the building at right looks as if it's engulfing the much older one at left. This site is a block or two from the busiest block on St. Mark's, which now also charms with a Supercuts, a Chipotle, and a Pinkberry coming soon. Not to forget the branded CBGB's store.
