No, indeed. In fact, I'm usually next door at Life Cafe. I've been having brunch here for about ten years. I sit by the window and watch the b-ball games in Thompson Sq. Park, sometimes tourists take pics of the locals, while we get on with our Bloody Mary's. The view is familiar. Comforting. I spent a week here when I was seven. But more importantly, my mother lived here. Right in this building. 343 East 10th Street. When she was a young girl. Working on Madison Avenue. Her favorite story:
When I was filled out the job application, I found the box marked "sex" and I wrote "no."
