Just saw a piece on the local news about this. You know the Egg Cream spot that has been their for ever. So sad, Ray has been a fixture of Avenue A and Tompkins Square Park for as long as I have been in NYC. Landlord is set to boot him out for back rent and so forth. Pay him a visit before he is gone for ever. He is likely to wind up homeless when the store is taken away from him. Guy always gave away lots of free stuff and is a true character with what seemed like a warm heart.
