The Lower East Side: An Endangered Place
Knickerbocker Village was in attendance at last week’s screening of The Lower East Side: An Endangered Place at the Tenement Museum, and sent in the following reaction to the film.
I saw this in it’s full version at the Tenement Museum last night. I’ll give it a 4th Ward review: Supposedly MA Shumin is famous, it’s hard to believe he’s famous for directing film. Warren Shaw as historian? He was oppressively dominating and self-aggrandizing at the presentation. They needed the 6th Ward Bowery originating hook. The best part was the portrayal, whether intended or unintended, of Sion Misrahi as an a-hole and the appearance of two personable KVers, Antoinette Massero and Angela Pungi.
