2008_07_cakeshi.jpgLast month, a court ruled that a single family could convert an 11,000 square foot tenement into a single family mansion after years of legal wrangling. Some other East Village residents* are planning a planning a protest tonight--a flyer explains, "Landlord Economakis says: 'Let them Eat Cake.' L.E.S. says let him eat shit." However Alistair Economakis is unhappy with the comparison to Marie Antoinette, writing, "As the statement was invoked to justify the death and destruction that came with the French Revolution, I hope that persons attending the protest do not mistakenly use it to justify the destruction of property." (* The tenants in Economakis's building are not organizing the protest; other EV residents are.)
