there goes the freaking neighborhood

a friend called from 126th and 5th the other day to tell me that nubian heritage (boma) was closing down. the doors were open and shit was being moved out, and there were no signs on the windows. i was devastated. big fat sad face.

i was going to write a whole post about the importance boma has had in my life here in new york, how my friend dave's face fell when i told him the news, how i just had a whole conversation with a neighbor the other day about the fabulousness of the business and the owners, and then i found this post over at uptown flavor. they aren't gone for good, they're just moving! that's the good news. the bad news is that the current space is being replaced by an applebees? boo.

there goes the neighborhood.
