Hangin' With Mr. Cooper

New, 20 comments

It's time for part two of Vanishing New York's Notes from the Backside, in which a disgruntled neighbor of the Cooper Square Hotel's rear outdoor terrace describes (or hilariously embellishes, perhaps?) the Coop counter-offensive: "We saw that the hotel's co-owner was sitting on the patio a few feet from our window. We put our speakers at the window. But what to play? The un-coolest thing we could come up with was Roger Miller and Conway Twitty's greatest hits. Then we put on this vile, 7-minute comedy routine about a prostitute and a banana. And set it to repeat." Next week the East 5th Street Block Association will have a public meeting with hotel reps to discuss the situation. [VNY; previously]
