I love this blog. This guy is making it his project to track and rail against every change to his favourite menus, bars, buildings and areas of New York. And good on him! If you read my feeble rant against the further hipsterisation of East London a couple of weeks ago, you will know I'm one of those grumpy people that doesn't like it when cities change. This is a picture I took in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn last time I was there of a shopfront that was giving off an eerie, bygone vibe.
This post about an ancient pharmacy selling off its old stock is a particular nugget. But there are more informative, complete guides to areas that even an occasional visitor to New York will recognise.
