Horn & Hardart

When I first came to New York, there was a Horn & Hardart on the corner of 42nd & 3rd. 

I know I’m dating myself (but I think that’s legal in New York now).

It was more than a nickel but you get the idea. They closed in 1991. It’s a Gap now.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Now this city is going to be home to a 24-Hour Cupcake ATM.

According to Adweek:
New York’s first Cupcake ATM, which can hold 760 cupcakes at a time in 20 different varieties, is located next to the Sprinkles Cupcakes bakery on the Upper East Side. The cupcakes cost $4.25 each in flavors like red velvet, Cuban coffee, banana dark chocolate and cinnamon sugar.

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
