ultraclay dot com - breaks the news of the closing of one of my favorite New York Dive Bars, The Stoned Crow. I was first taken here by dear friends Joe & Darlene about six years ago. Ever since, I've taken many clients, friends and even New Yorkers here for the great burgers and colorful clientele. I had a long talk with Betty, the owner last time I was in town - per usual she was holding court with her fire engine red hair in a little cubby closet before you went into the dining room. I make it a point to stop in every time I go to NYC. I didn't make my Winter trip this year, so I'll have to say goodbye from afar.
ultraclay dot com gives a lovely tribute... check it out.
gothamist gets to the nitty gritty - should have known it was a rent hike... boohiss!
