Had a fascinating interview with Jacquelyn Gallo that ran on evgrieve today. The whole thing is worth a read, but below was my favorite paragraph. It's an important perspective. Things are changing fast here and it's unfortunate, but there are people like Jacquelyn still working hard to create and keep what makes the East Village special. Read the entire interview here.
I remember when I first moved here and everybody was like, “The East Village has changed so much.” It’s the normal gripe, which I understand, but am not a supporter of. Come in and do something here. We have an open forum. That’s the thing — it’s the people. There’s no building that’s haunted by the ghost of coolness. Yes, Mars Bar was great. I loved it and went almost every day. Amy who worked there now works across the street [at Sidewalk]. Plenty of the Mars Bar people go there. I mean, it’s not the same thing, you can’t get naked and light stuff on fire, unfortunately, but if you like that then create another space. Things change all of the time ... you can’t just kill the energy. You just have to keep blowing on the embers and eventually the fire will start again.
