What it takes to get an eviction notice in the West Village these days: display naked people in the window. And so the fate of Christopher Street art gallery Chair and the Maiden?the latest in a long line of establishments to leave the West Village?was sealed, but that doesn't mean the gallery's taking its fate lying down. Vanishing New York caught the gallery's goodbye note lamenting the death of "the West Village's historic roots of self-expression." But, Chair and the Maiden fans, this isn't your last chance, because the gallery will reopen next year in Chels?actually, it's not like anyone doesn't know where.
