El Quixote restaurant today.  It was perfect as it was.  The people that worked there were like family to us in the Hotel Chelsea.  I’ve known some of them 24 years.  They were fired with two weeks notice and told it would be renovated and reopened in 7 months.  I think it’s been 7 months already.  The new floor plan is smaller and will probably have a different menu.  I’m sure it will be tastefully redone  but i don’t understand what’s wrong with leaving something old. It was always popular, Like the Hotel Chelsea above it. (Now empty and being renovated for 7 years) Ugh. #nosignofbeingfinished. #respectoldschool #elquixote #hotelchelsea #ruined #sad #vanishingnewyork. #sorryforthebummer

Nice 1907 French Renaissance revival building with heritage listed terra cotta exterior you got there... be a shame if someone built a looming soulless glass monstrosity right next door.

Well, I’ll give it this: I thought Pacific Green would die a few years ago when it was first proposed to be a J. Crew. I don’t know if that company finally persuaded the landlords, but good on fucking them for holding out all these years. Just wish it could have been longer. Despite the Trader Joe’s and off market produce pop up to the right, this is an underserved corner of quality and freshness all of us in the neighborhood will miss all the time, especially on holidays and off hours anything else is closed. They served us. We needed them. There is no way I need Suprema cotton t-shirts at 3pm on Thanksgiving, but I could always use  great quality pears and decent flour. Or olives. Or hummus. Or canned tomatoes. Or garlic. Or soda. Or chocolate for a midnight craving. It goes on. Thank you for your service. We’ll really miss you.

Working Saturday meant I was able to visit New York Elegant for the first time since they officially opened at their new location. This multi generational family business closed their home after decades on 40th and moved to a new, smaller location down on 36th•
The service is still above and beyond to get the faux fur you need 5 minutes after they’ve closed for the day•

There are now no more fabric stores on 40th•

Hard to believe I used to party at this place, when it was a nightclub, as a teenager and now it’s a buttoned-up NYU building I go to for career advice.  Cheesh, I feel old. 🤷🏾‍♀️🤪💃🏾🕺🏾#vanishingnewyork #palladium #nyu #nyuviolets #unionsquare #ilovethenightlife #mytown #dancingdisco #timeflies

I was sad to hear a great pub closed this week, St. Dymphna’s in the East Village at 118 St Marks place between Avenue A and 1st. 
On the night of September 11th, 2001, after a horror-filled day in New York City , as tanks rolled through downtown, my then girlfriend and I stumbled into St Dymphnas seeking refuge, community, answers, shelter, and a pint. 
We sat at the bar in one of the few places to remain open in the city and shared our shock and sadness at the last 12 hours. 
St Dymphna - being the patron saint of runaways - welcomed us - ‘come in she said I’ll give you...shelter from the storm’
I’ll always remember the kind staff and fellow New Yorkers who shared that night with us. 
RIP to another great business nyc has lost.  #vanishingnewyork #lostnewyork #stdymphnas #eastvillage #stmarksplace #nyc #newyorkcity #newyork @stdymphnas @eastvillage.resident @newyorkermag #bar #pub #september11 #911 #worldtradecenter #downtownnyc #bobdylan #shelterfromthestorm #stdymphna #refuge #travel #irishpub #seetheworld #nativenewyorker @nytimes

FRIENDS - Are you tired of losing your neighborhood institution/gem/favorite spot?  To make room for another Chase location? 
SUPPORT THE SMALL BUSINESS JOBS SURVIVAL ACT TODAY - it’s SUPER EASY! -Click my links below to send a simple form to NYC Council Members - IT’S ALREADY WRITTEN FOR YA, just click send. -This is the moment we have been waiting for.  The #SBJSA is having a Hearing, TODAY, at City Hall, at 1 pm.  SHOW UP IF YOU CAN. -Small businesses in NYC face tremendous pressures - every day it’s the same story, a longtime bar, coffee shop, restaurant, book store, quirky boutique, etc., that you love ends up closing.  The Number 1 reason is, for established business invariably every time, the inability to negotiate a lease.  Small businesses that have been integral parts of our COMMUNITIES can’t continue because they are forced out by greedy unreasonable commercial landlords. -Why?  Landlords believe they can rent to the national chain stores and same old tenants that we don’t need: Chase & Citibank, Duane Reade, Starbucks, Chipotle, big fashion retailers (JCrew, the Gap, H&M), for a lot more money (and they do and often get the insane rent they ask for!). They will literally leave their spaces EMPTY, for YEARS, because they think they can get the exorbitant rent they are seeking. -So What?  NYC’s largest employer is SMALL BUSINESS.  Secure jobs for most middle income New Yorkers are being lost every day as the established businesses they work in are forced to close when their leases expire.  Also - we are left with swaths of commercial real estate GHOST TOWNS (5th avenue, Bleecker Street and the West Village, Smith Street in Carroll Gardens) - the rent is too damn high.  Beautiful neighborhoods look creepy as every store front you pass by is EMPTY.  We are left with a HOMOGENOUS ANTISEPTIC BORING SAD MONOSCAPE (A word I just invented, a monoculture landscape) -THERE IS A SOLUTION - the #SBJSA would allow:
1. The Right to renew the commercial lease
2. A Minimum 10 year Extension
3. Equal rights to negotiate a fair rent (with 3rd party arbitration allowed if an agreement cannot be reached between landlord and tenant).

Another one down - this forlorn pair was at Clinton on Grand Street for quite a long time.  A dense 10+ story building has replaced everything within view, save for the bus stop. #vanishingnewyork #2009 #nypix #lowereastsidenyc #historicpreservation
