Change…

Yesterday I was in downtown JC looking to buy a container of milk. I usually go to A-1 Deli on Grove Street. I walked in and the shelves were empty. This only means one thing…GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. I have been patronizing this place for the longest time, way before I lived here. As far back as the 90’s. It’s the old story of landlord triples the rent, store moves. There are several empty store fronts on Grove.

Found this on Curbed New York:

Seems appropriate. Not that I’m adverse to change, but it seems as if there is a huge push for the wealthy. What happened to the 99%? Or what will happen to the 99%?

Frank Miller apparently had something to say about it:

Well perhaps this is what happens when you make a lot of money and forget about how you got there.
