Dear Editor:Here is a little true story. You can make of it what you will.I first moved to the north side of Greenwich Village in the early 1960s. Eighth Street, which borders where I lived, was a real Village street. There was a great bookstore, a funky tea room and even a movie theater. One summer in the 1980s when I came back to New York from Aspen, it was all gone. Every store on the block had been priced out of their rent, and there was nothing anyone could do. Between Fifth and Sixth avenues, they have all been replaced by shoe stores – one after the other. It will never come back.Sound familiar?Jeremy BernsteinAspen
