Scarano is Legend; Equinox Responds to Billboard Scrap

New, 7 comments

BOWERY?We don't want to venture too much into TMZ territory, but it can be confirmed that Scarano-on-the-Bowery has a celebrity-in-residence. A tipster writes: "Walking home from work I spotted someone actually walking out of the gate at 52E4TH and I immediately identified him as John Legend and his English Bulldog. I know this picture sucks but that is indeed him crossing the street in the big coat." We previously looked at Legend's deal-making skillz in the Bowery's weirdest new building. [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENWICH VILLAGE?The oversize advertecture now adorning the Greenwich Avenue Equinox gym is, we can now confirm, the biggest controversy of all time. Jumping into the fray is Equinox itself, which sent us this statement for why the buff bods decided to erect the massive signage now wrapping its building: "MY BODY MY BIOGRAPHY is a campaign that celebrates our community of extraordinary members and their remarkable stories...With this campaign, we have taken the power of the Equinox community and extended it outside of the gym with the hope of inspiring others. We chose our location in Greenwich Village to proudly launch and display this campaign because the history of the neighborhood is steeped in community, triumph over adversity, tradition, and honoring diversity." Guess, uh, that's settled! [CurbedWire Inbox]
