A apartment in Manhattan that looks like a Antique Shop in the East Village on Tompkins Square Park is the subject of this short film by departure arrival films. Anthony the owner speaks on his vast collection of Antiques and people mistakenly walking in to his apartment.
On an unseasonably warm November night in Manhattan on our way to get ice cream, we stumbled upon what appeared to be a vintage shop, brightly lit display window and all. As we began to walk in, a man sitting out front warned us that we were welcome to explore, but nothing inside was for sale. Our interests piqued, we began to browse through the collections the man out front had built throughout his life. This is a story of a man and his home.

In a neighborhood overrun by bars ,clubs, people lurking all through the night one would think you could handle a 24 hour IHOP. Some Residents of the East Village new IHOP’s on 14 st are being overrun with Bacon Smell and noise and are giving warning to the resident who live near the upcoming Ihop that is coming to the Limelight.
One blog comment on my blog reads
Sell your apartments, Limelight neighbors. Sell now. The local owner of the 14th St location somehow persuaded the DOB to allow them to place the restaurant’s heavy equipment and ventilation system on the “roof” of the 1-story extension behind the building, instead of on the building’s actual roof; as a result, the (considerable) noise, and the smell of rancid bacon are channeled directly into the windows of homes up and down East 15th Street 24/7. My apartment now smells like the kitchen of a cheap hotel after the breakfast rush. All.The.Time. If your neighborhood is the next to be invaded by IHOP, get out now while you still can. Because if you wait until after the IHOP has opened, you’ll be trapped. IHOP corporate won’t take responsibility for the behavior of the local owner, and the local owner just shrugs off the problems. Multiple calls to 311 and city officials have accomplished nothing. No one is helping us, and no one will help you, either.
“There can be times at three or four in the morning when you feel like you’re in the kitchen with them,” neighbor Mary Beth Powers says. “There is no relief.” She’s even worried it is ruining her furniture. “It smells like rancid bacon. I just imagine it: a film of crap on my furniture, on my rugs, on my walls. I actually wonder, is this being soaked up in my apartment?”

Jimmy McMillan Landlord Want To Evict Him From East Village Apartment
The Daily News reports that at the Manhattan housing court appearance, “McMillan — his distinctive white hair combed back — insisted he was living at the Manhattan apartment while using a second address in Brooklyn as an office. But his landlord countered that McMillan is improperly using the Manhattan apartment as an inexpensive residence for his 32-year-old son, Jimmy McMillan IV. Estimates are that the landlord could rent the apartment for nearly three times as much as McMillan pays.”
“Although he even registered to vote using the Brooklyn address, McMillan insisted that he always lived in Manhattan — and produced a driver’s license featuring his St. Mark’s Place address.” And there’s a simple reason why McMillan allowed his son to live in the apartment: “I want a grandkid. I stayed away so he could bring a young lady over.”
Sign the Petition to save here
St. Mark’s Bookshop is hosting a signing for Michael Moore’s memoir called Here Comes Trouble this Thursday, September 29 at 7 p.m
The St. Mark’s Bookshop, a vital Lower East Side cultural institution, needs a rent low enough to survive. Join the Cooper Square Committee petitioning Cooper Union, the bookstore’s landlord, to give St. Mark’s Bookshop a lower rent.
The St. Mark’s Bookshop has a long tradition in the Lower East Side and serves an admirable and increasingly rare function. St. Mark’s is struggling to pay the market rent that Cooper Union is charging them at 31 3rd Ave. A significant rent concession by Cooper Union could save this irreplaceable neighborhood institution.
Aww yes 34th and 8th ave on a trash day by Mc’donalds this smells of the city we New Yokers really enjoy and u could to with this candles scented to smell like new york city streets.
According To The nypost.com
Williamsburg is a neighborhood full of “Friends.”
The Brooklyn hipster haven has the highest percentage of households made up of roommates, with 6,110, or 9 percent, of them in the 11211 ZIP code, according to 2010 Census data.
“There’s amenities there, like bars and restaurants, that are likely to be attractive. Once a neighborhood develops a cachet, it snowballs,” said William Helmreich, a City College sociologist.
The East Village and Murray Hill in Manhattan ranked second and third for the most households made up of roommates in the city, the Census data show.
On the other end of the spectrum, Staten Island is the land of marital bliss.
The East Village is adding a new 7-11 to its retail establishments that would make it 10 in the borough of Manhattan. To us city folks who don,t know about 7-11 (And Only Thought it was what Ice Cube said when he played Dice) don,t forgot about the free slurpee day on the date 7/11 because i missed it a couple of times.
A 7-Eleven spokesperson tells Garth Johnston at Gothamist that the store will open on Oct. 5

Jordy Trachtenberg Says ”
I have been living in NYC for 25 years. For the first time, I have a problem that seems to be hard to solve. I live on St. Marks Place between 2nd and 3rd. For the past 6 weeks I’ve had a homeless man shit on the front door of my building. NOBODY wants to deal with it. 311, 911, etc just don’t care. I get it too, there are a lot bigger issues going on. But see, it’s a quality of life issue for both me and my neighbors and this sub human of a homeless man. It’s not fun starting your day off when you walk out of your building to greet the world and it kicks off with a pile of shit, the stench and flies. I have caught the Doorshitter in action! I was nice to him the first time. I told him he must stop and if he doesn’t I will take action. The Mad Crapper has continued his shitty assault on my door. I will stop this ace of a man dropping deuces if it’s the last thing I do!
Below, you can listen to a voice mail left for him by a friend who says he also ran into the homeless man on the verge of getting into a fight over his outdoor bathroom habits:” (more…)
