It did give me sort of a rush. As a sidenote: the two NYC agencies I
called answered the phone quickly, did not put me on hold, and answered
my questions clearly and precisely. There was no hint of bureaucratic
jive at work. While I'm not the biggest fan of Mayor Giuliani,
something is going very right under his administration.

This was not fighting City Hall, it was using City Hall to fight someone

I wonder if this kind of thing would have happened years back when 48th
Street really WAS "Music Street" and there were stores like Ponte's.
The street is now a shadow of what it once was--maybe 1/3 of a block
huddled down toward the 7th Avenue end--and there just isn't much left
in the way of competition.

I'm curious. There are surely some people here who were playing when
Ponte's was still around. Was it as good as the legends suggest?
