Boy, talk about fickle! There's talk of a Trader's Joe coming in at Ave A and 14th St as soon as that mega-condo is built there and already people are thrilled that we'll have something in the neighborhood to, quite frankly, get rid of Associated and those pesky, low-class workers from the Lower East Side, whatever remains of the true LES, of course.
I dunno. I think that the "other side" has won and that affordability is definitely on the way out as long as we can claim cleaner hands and a nicer "experience." Ultimately we'll pay more for the pleasure, but what the hell, that's what life is now all about: paying more.
