I’m down with commerce.  I’m down with New York City…but another boutique Bowery hotel which is stones throw from that other Bowery boutique hotel. What hip young thing will lay claim to this jammy?  Oh well, at least it’s French and the transaction was ca$h (which is king) friends.

So long, Bowery Salvation Army.

So long, CBGB’s.  So long, dying light supply and restaurant stores.

Hi, over-gentrification, Mall of America slamming into those fair streets.

So long, Bowery.
