Nicky's Vietnamese sandwiches
So many restaurants — so little time. Sometimes the sheer number of interesting places in this neighborhood can be a little daunting. Coming up on Saturday, Fourth Arts Block (FAB) has a solution for anyone who might want a little guidance: it’s the East Village Eats Tasting Tour.

Last year’s popular Steampunk Haunted House is back at Abrons Arts Center this Halloween for a second season. The “neo-Victorian” inspired tour looks like a lot of fun for the whole family (ages 8 and older). It was created by Zach Morris and Third Rail Projects, incorporating installation and performance art into a winding “labyrinthine” adventure inside the Henry Street Playhouse.

WNYC posted a story this morning that’s sure to get Lower East Side residents talking. It’s an update on the problem-plagued reconstruction of East River Park, a project that has dragged on for a decade. Matthew Schuerman reports:
The city has reopened the park — snuggled between the FDR Drive and the water — segment by segment, as each segment is finished. The playing fields were revamped several years ago. A long stretch of the promenade opened earlier this year. But the three or four southernmost blocks are still shrouded behind a chain link fence.
And how does the city explain why it’s taking so long to finish the job?
Morning rain showers will give way to partly sunny skies this afternoon and a high of 60.
