East Village, Long Gentrified, Takes a Snooty Turn

New, 27 comments

The A Building, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, fancypants doorman-attended lobby and rooftop pool, is not shy about its desire to make the East Village safe for luxury development. But has it gone too far? Just installed on the outside of the building: one of those light-up signs for hailing taxis. We don't think that 13th Street between First Avenue and Avenue A will be mistaken for Central Park West or Park Avenue anytime soon, but is it finally safe to open up that monocle shop we've been dreaming about?
