The arrival of 20,000 stickers meant to be stuck in protest to anything with a clean and flat surface in lower Manhattan represents the latest front in the ongoing neighborhood crusade against the growing number of 7-Eleven stores in the East Village. “Shopping 7-Eleven? Shame On You!” they proclaim, with the added fine print, “it’s not too late to support local East Village stores & merchants, turn around and shop elsewhere.” If we don’t end this war now, come springtime the convenience store will be using drones to drop pamphlets extolling the virtues of Slurpees over Tompkins Square Park.
