Goodbye Max Fish E-mail
Written by Michelle

ludlow_97.jpgWhat a bummer. The top half of Ludlow that we call home is pretty much shot to hell these days. Poor Ludlow is in ruins thanks to multiple abandoned high-rise projects that our mayor opened the LES to. The high-rises  have since been left to stand half built, empty and unfinished. It's like the teeth got blacked out on our street. Now the news is out , Max Fish and Pink Pony are officially closing.  I know that nothing stands still in the city but I'm still sad to see another "old timer" leave. I'm hoping Ulli finds a new space for Max Fish like Terry found a new space for TG 170.  It's hard for bars to move, Liquor licenses are hard to obtain. Daredevil is feeling kind of lonely on the block with soon to be empty spaces on both sides and across the street. We're toughing it out for the time being. 

I moved to Ludlow in 93 my first space was an apartment I tattooed out of across the street. Two years later I moved  above Pianos (back when they actually sold Pianos). In 97 when tattooing was legalized Brad and I opened Daredevil Tattooat 174 Ludlow. The image above is from pictures  I took  of the block to send to Brad in St. Louis. I wanted him to get the feel of the neighborhood.  He had never been to Ludlow Street. I remember his mom said that Ludlow looked like Sesame Street. How nice and homey the block looked back then before the abomination they built on our corner. Ulli was running both Max Fish and the Pink Pony at the time. Terry ran TG 170 a few doors down. Of course the Hat was around too. 

All you can do is appreciate your neighborhood as it stands.   You don't know how long it will last the way it is and how long the businesses that give it character can hang in there. Be sure to shop locally whenever you can small businesses need your support.
