Blog Spotlight: Lost City

lostcity2b660.jpg

I am truly fascinated by all things hidden in New York, subversive in New York and historical in New York. Thus my love of the Speak Easy. I was just rummaging online and came across this blog Lost City and their article on Chumley’s, the famed Speak Easy at 86 Bedford. It’s a wonderful read and catalog of old New York or as the author puts it: “A running Jeremiad on the vestiges of Old New York as they are steamrolled under or threatened by the currently ruthless real estate market and the City Fathers’ disregard for Gotham’s historical and cultural fabric.”

That line sounds pretty pissy but still, Auntie and I really appreciate the list of threatened Landmarks, who owns thier buildings and whatnot. I wonder what Lost City’s take is on all of those damn banks cluttering up the NYC streets.
