From Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York , a peek inside some serious construction of what used to be a laundromat for West Village residents and the beloved, Left Bank Books. No Marc Jacobs store looks to bust a move.  Nope, here it seems the vacancy creates a chance for new little cafes and places where the glut of trendy-trendy restaurants with lines out the yin-yang can wait their heart’s content.  Lovely for the neighbors of the quiet, peaceful stroll along West 4th.
