Selling Clothes

You might wonder what a sign such as this one on First Avenue and East 12th Street has to do with selling clothes:

Clothes store advertisement.

Well, the answer is this: SSUR is a clothes store on Elizabeth Street, between East Houston and Bleecker Streets — not in the East Village!

Why would a clothes store in a chichi part of town bring their gun imagery to the East Village, where as you can see from the picture, mothers pushing strollers are a familiar sight?

East Villagers say: "Keep your gun posturing in NoLita, where it belongs!" They also say: "The copyright symbol should be superscript!"

That's what they say… in the East Village Today!

  1. I don't think I will shop a store that advertises via violence.
