My Blog is All Sorts of Broken and I’m so Blue!

But check out the beautiful window of this new store on West 4th Street.  It’s next to one of the few deli’s left in a formerly deli-rich neighborhood.  This store is also in the spot of the former Patisserie Lanciani, another place I miss. Oh God.  Life is slowly becoming a bunch of things and people I miss. (We’re doomed!!)

This store is like a gallery of clothes.  Coincidentally, on the other side of the deli is another new business—an art gallery.  I asked one of the deli guys if he was excited about two new stores going in on either side of him and he said, “Another two stores I can’t afford to shop in.”

I had to concede the point.  That’s our neighborhood now. Places we can’t afford to shop in.

At least they’re pretty!
