New York/St. Mark's Place

St. Mark's Place

I walked today along St. Mark's Place between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. It's the same semi-tawdry strip that it's always been despite the transformation of so much of the East Village. When I first came to New York in 1977 there were few places in the neighborhood to get a haircut--one was a small shop on St. Mark's--so I went there. It was cheap and they got the job done.

Well, surprise! It's still there, virtually unchanged.
