In NoLita, Sometimes the Little Guys Win

Mott Street and Houston were in an uproar when the local bodega was closed to make room for another set of fancy housing or Mid-2000's style boutique selling Alice & Olivia flimsy dresses. Local residents were left to scrounge for food elsewhere (ok, Mott and Spring, but as a New Yorker I know the sting of an old reliable shutting its doors) 

Well looks like the construction has stopped and even though we all know it shall reignite and the bodega is gone for good, this feels like a small, heart warming victory for local preservation
