Larger-than-usual illuminated lettering was hoisted into place yesterday afternoon. Fits right in with the ginormous AT&T Wireless sign adjacent. Meanwhile, mum is the word a few blocks south on Grand Street, where the Slurpee slingers are to open another such outpost. The war on bodegas in this corner of the Lower East Side has just begun. Saddle up.
