Here's Mud in Your Eye!
Today. Not as loud as Joy Ride, but kicking in with the exhaust/refrig/whatever system. Doesn't belong here, either way.
BTW, I've noticed that a LOT of young NYU-type Lower East Side residents are using the Oval on nice sunny days like today. I see them flocking in from below 14th St, bringing their chairs and blankets and water bottles. I guess these food trucks are for their pleasure as well--and they don't care about what the trucks do to the complex because--hey--they don't live here and it's super having snacks and soft drinks/coffee at your disposal a few yards away from where you sunbathe or kick back with a book.
Of course, Rose Associates bullshits about the Oval and who is allowed to be in it, as they imply on the official Community site that the Oval and its events are for "PCVST residents and their guests." Yet what has happened is that now the Oval is a not very well "best kept secret" of where young white folks can head for a safe and relatively relaxing afternoon, for free and without paying any rent. I wonder if our rent checks help out in the public access use of this complex and its cleanup afterward? Perhaps Adam Rose can lower our rents if so, because we shouldn't be paying for this.
