Things that are no longer in NYC for me to miss

Uncategorized

The last time I moved away from NYC (before moving back, two years later) these were things I dearly missed during my time in LA:

1) Original Ray’s pizza on 6th Ave & 11th (now gone)

2) Late night dinner/early breakfast at Yaffa Cafe (now gone)

3) Brunch at Grange Hall (now long gone)

4) Movies at the Angelika (hasn’t been renovated since I was in college, bathrooms are intolerable)

5) Bendix Diner (now gone in both locations)

6) Drinkin’ at Motor City Lodge, Luna Lounge, Max Fish (all three… gone)

7) Seeing shows at the Mercury Lounge (now totally douche-ified)

8) Watching the sun rise from my rooftop in the East Village (can’t afford the East Village anymore)

9) Chilling at the Scratcher (still there, but Scottish Mark is famous now and Karl Geary is off doing Breaking Bad types of things)

10) Seeing NYC classics like Vincent Gallo and Moby strolling around (long gone)
