Spotted this morning outside of the shuttered and for-rent Joe Jr.: the Le Gamin truck! Is it shamelessly profiteering off the diners death, or just consoling the bereft with coffee and crpes? And why are we having a Stephen Kingesque nightmare vision of the future where trucks battle each other to the finish and ravage the empty husks of bygone brick and mortars? Maybe thats a little dramatic: Joe Jr. in Gramercy is still up and running (the way it was explained to us, it was opened in 1973 by the owner of the West Village location, who sold each location to one of their respective employees a couple of years later). Take a look at the Gramercy holdovers delightful signage, and dont you cry tonight.
