The block where I used to live in Hell’s Kitchen(ette) is mentioned on Curbed.com today. Apparently all the stores along Ninth Avenue on the block are closed. If they tear down my building and put in something stupid there I’ll be really disappointed. Odds are, that’s exactly what will happen. Every time you turn around in NYC someone’s torn down a perfectly wonderful old building and thrown up a new butt ugly one.
I also didn’t know that the Vynl Diner moved. Why didn’t anyone tell me? I used to refer to Vynl as my kitchen, because it was just downstairs. “I’m running down to the kitchen to get a TLT, do you want anything?”
Fun fact: Vynl Diner is mentioned in I’M YOUR MAN.
