120 St. Marks Update

An afternoon stroll on this beautiful day took me past 120 St. Marks Place, the last known squat on this storied street. The building, known as The Cave, is where the well known Mosaic Man, aka Jim Power, lived for years before being evicted (a situation I wrote about extensively on my previous Polis site over at Blogger, click here for the original post). In fact, Mosaic Man continued to live in a make-shift shack out front of 120 St. Marks for months while demolition of the building was underway. Now it seems to be only a matter of weeks before the building will be all but ready for occupation. No word yet on the management’s website of whether it will be apartments or condos, but either way, there’s no doubt it will be expensive. I haven’t seen Mosaic Man lately, but I know he’s still around the nabe from seeing sidewalk chalk promos for his website, EastVillage.com.

    Is there a word on who the management of the building is?
