Once again, gentrification has ruined a neighborhood that had charm and character. Steve got off MetroNorth and walked across 125th Street last week…passing one national chain outlet after the next. Lids. Foot Locker. The Body Shop. (The ubiquitous) Starbucks. Even two Times Square-sized two-story food outlets: Applebee’s and Joe’s Crab Shack. National chains once shunned Manhattan. These days, they’re turning the city into a suburban outdoor mall. Which local favorite have you lost recently?
