Good Morning: Sin Sin Meeting, Arrest in 1993 Rape Case, Wal-Mart Looks Downtown

Must Read

We begin the morning with a view of the neighborhood from the roof of the Bowery Mission. Another nice fall day is ahead — sunny and 72.  On the agenda, this evening’s meeting of the 9th Precinct Community Council should be interesting. Neighborhood activists hope for a big show of support for cracking down on Sin Sin, the infamous East Village bar.

In the news, thanks to DNA evidence police say they’ve solved a 1993 rape case. Yesterday a 46-year old man was charged in connection with the robbery and assault of a young woman (16 years old at the time), as she was entering her apartment building on Eldridge Street.

Tablet Magazine takes a look at the politics behind a news conference at City Hall yesterday denouncing Carl Paladino for comparing Sheldon Silver to Hitler.  The Post, followed by the Observer, speculates about the dwindling stock of rent controlled apartments in New York City.  Wal-Mart has been scouting locations in “the lower part of Manhattan” for its new “small format stores.”

Coming up today, we’ll have a report from the Chinatown Working Group, a profile of  longtime LES business Sol Moscot and a closer look at the white roof project at the Bowery Mission.
