Downtown is Disappearing

"I wish it was the fifties or the sixties or the teens, so I could talk to someone who don't know what Starbucks means," laments folk artist Chris Lowe about the gentrification of once gritty and eclectic lower Manhattan in one of the songs that inspired the theme of tomorrow night's installment of Lower East Side Stories. The New York-born musician, who's lived on MacDougal Street for the past 20 years, will be performing live at the event, hosted by spoken word artist H.R. Britton. Check out a sample of Lowe's work below.
