I mean, look at this. A pretty little terrace, probably a nice place to sit, but look at the rest of this building.
That brick! Or siding, or whatever the hell it is?? What do I know??
And this on top of a 99 cent store. You know, these stores might be fun to shop in. I should shut up and go inside, I’ll bet it’s like the 5 and 10s of my youth. Okay, I’ll go to one and report back.
There’s a block fair on Bleecker right now, as I type, and usually I am never tempted by anything sold at these things, but there are the prettiest, prettiest tie-dyed tshirts down there right now and I WANT ONE. The colors are gorgeous, and the tie-dye pattern very subtle and understated. Not Grateful Dead-y at all. (Not there’s anything wrong with that. I’m a Dead fan. But fashion-wise, they were not a good influence.)
I think I might shower and shop. Hmm. Shower and Shop. Should be a title of something.

I agree – if you have to pay for sign anyway why not pick out a nice one so place doesn’t look so tacky! Just because something is inexpensive doesn’t have to mean ugly.
I still have to go there! I’m going to try to get pictures of what it looks like inside.
