Lower East Side's Decline Scores Media Play

New evidence: the space that holds new three-ring circus Libation cost $2 million (not counting Lizzie Grubman's retainer); owner says, "We want to raise the level of what's going on around here." And: the owner of Ludlow Street's Dark Room declares his own bar over:

(Spoiler alert: We're quoted in the article. Whore, whore, whore &c.)
