Peeved East Villagers Glue Rocks to Seats to Deter Crowds

New, 21 comments

Not all East Village residents are happy about the neighborhood's new super hip veggie burger joint on East 9th Street. In what is perhaps the most NIMBY move ever, Gothamist reports that some neighborhood residents have glued rocks to the wooden tree wells surrounding the street's foliage so patrons of Superiority Burger can't comfortably plant their posteriors out front of the buzzy new joint. And not only that, they've spray painted on top of said rocks a "No Bikes" proclamation. Hopefully the restaurant's interior makes up for the stone-cold welcome mat its neighbors have laid down for new guests.
