Death of an East Village Pussy

New, 6 comments

We do love any tribute to the city's "mayors," but we are saddened to pass along word via the Villager of the death of Pretty Boy, the East Village's Mayor of 7th Street for over 20 years. Oh, did we mention that Pretty Boy was a cat? A neighbor relays what one super said about Pretty Boy, and adds his own thoughts: "One of them said, 'I wish I had a cool walk like that.' It really was a cool walk, especially as he got older, it was a Zen-like stroll. It was so serene. I like to think of him as my sensei — my Zen master." [Villager]
