s a benefit for Anthony who is suing Public Storage for selling a thirty-four year accumulation of papers, books, art, music, clothes and well, everything, completely without warning when they knew he was in London, and owed them just $1,350. It is now over two years since Public Storage (ranked at 986 in Fortune’s 2009 list of the top 1000 corporations in the US, by the way) sold Anthony’s belongings to a single individual, who paid $630.
   The buyer is threatening to sell everything, an action which can be prevented by the posting of a $350,000 bond. Anthony hopes to either stop the sale of his property or at least recover his private papers and art of particularly personal significance in advance of what is likely to be a closely watched trial.

The case of ‘The Butcher of Tompkins Square Park’

Gentrification- RIP Peewee – Cochise out of jail- Richie and Taylor Mead- Anthony Pardone in NYC

Posted in Clayton Patterson, Lower East Side, Neighborhood Happenings, News, People, Photos on February 4, 2012 by Clayton Patterson

Gentrification is dividing up the community more and more each day.   For the people who were born and raised in the community there is almost nothing left for them to do.  So much of what was is no more.  The families are being pushed out and the traditional businesses are closing because they cannot afford the escalating rents.   Even though there is a flood of new businesses almost none of it is accessible or interesting to the local youth.   So there is an increase in violence, going to prison and death by drugs.

Cochise of the Satan Sinner Nomads just got out of jail after 18 years.  He has dropped out of the gang  life and is interested in helping to try and guide the youth away from the life style.  Last week there was a shooting at 210 Stanton, and, in a separate incident , young Peewee from Allen died RIP.  Anthony Pardone was in town to screen his new movie at Film Anthology Archives- and Richie is hanging with Taylor Mead.

I send my love and respect to all of the old school.
