The fabric shop between 84/85 on 37th is closing 12/3.
The block where Kelly's is, and the building that was in landmark discussion.

The shopkeeper and his assistant are really fantastic guys. A great pairing of boss and employee, both so helpful...speakers of many, many languages.
They're moving to 103/37th.

Is that whole strip closing for the upcoming construction? I see the furniture store is now closed and the florist on the corner has been closed for some months. That leaves the Ecuadorian restaurant and Kelly's shipping.

Making any new recipes or sticking to the old favorites?

I'm thinking of making this kale salad https://cookieandkate.com/2012/debs-kale-salad-with-apple-cranberries-and-pecans/

One of my family's favorite dessert recipes is a mocha chiffon pie, something like this http://susan-susancancook.blogspot.com/2011/11/mocha-chiffon-pie.html

the bill has apparently been kicking around for a while now, but just got a new boost thanks to that collapse. one project referenced in this article? a Harlem site where scaffolding has been up for *17 years* .

@dssjh -- Do you have more information about he bill? Would it only apply to commercial projects? I'd be concerned if it applies to residential ones as well, because extensive capital improvement projects (e.g., roof or parapet), which a lot of local coops do, regularly take over 6 months. The thought of adding thousands of dollars of scaffolding costs is a massive disincentive to maintain buildings. We're already sucked dry with architect fees, permits, LPC requirements and what-nots.

bumping this after the weekend scaffolding collapse in Soho that sent five people to the hospital.
the councilman for the area has proposed a bill limiting the amount of time scaffolds can remain up - he's suggesting six months.

 Yes, they look to be operational and the window display for the Holidays is gorgeous. Time to show them some real
love and shop local.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Honey vendor on 37th Avenue

We stopped on Friday. He had a big crowd and was allowing samples. He had raw honey and creamed honey and marketing alluding to the health benefits. He offered buckwheat and orange blossom. We would have bought some, but I became skeptical by three things.
First, a store price sticker was semi ripped off one bottle.
Second, the labels didn't state where the honey was from. (I had to show my son at the veggie shop that it's a law to have this info)
Third, under his table were a bunch of labels to get slapped on bottles.

It was tasty and good quality, but a bit strange.

The honey vendor was out today. I think the corner was 83rd/37th.
