The Big Boys are in town. Think of Olive & Bette’s; one of the anchors in a neighbor which once composed of Biography Bookstore, Kims video and various antique stores.  As Michael Kors flexed his new shiny muscle, it looks as if the West Village is Madison Avenue only with cupcakes and narrow streets which will make for some pretty gnarly crowds. Make way for Burberry, the Marcs, the Ralphs and all the other stalemates in every mall in America.

What a difference a decade makes.  Oh well, you know the tenants are down with the new paint job.

Zeppelin’s lyrics have never made more sense …cents.

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
