2008_07_evport2.jpgEV Grieve has details from Friday night's protest over the tenement-to-mansion conversion of 47 East 3rd Street. According to EV Grieve, the protest, organized by other East Village residents (and not remaining tenants at the building), seemed to be "fairly calm and orderly," with "protestors...fenced in by the police" (and the police seemed nice, too). There's also video here. Sidenote: Lately, the cousin of 47 East 3rd Street's owner has apparently been commenting on various blogs, eviscerating his "spoiled brat" cousin.
