Boringside Heights: Got Brits? Edition

The West Way Café has transformed. The diner isn’t open yet, but it’s not clear what we should expect. The only culinary feature of note in Manchester, England, is its Curry Mile, but this Manchester’s decor doesn’t hint at any South Asian flavors… One could also entertain hopes of a budget-friendly eatery, given that Manchester, […]

Scaffolding Outside Schapiro

Aw shucks, there’s new scaffolding between Broadway and Riverside. But Bwog’s feeling good today. Sure, scaffolding is unattractive, but if it were painted orange and had cascading sheets, we could have a world famous art installation right here in Morningside.
