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!
