NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer is moving his Union Square Cafe because of a rent hike, and here he is with an op-ed in the Times. Quote: "It is sad that the more 'successful' a neighborhood becomes, the more it gradually takes on a recognizable, common look, as the same banks, drugstore chains and national brands move in. Be honest: Would you rather have one more bank branch in your neighborhood, or another independent restaurant?" [NYT]
