Village Veloce

Bar VeloceIt’s hard to believe that this throwback to the era of random violence happened just three blocks from where I live now and just a block from where I lived for two years: “Patrons of Bar Veloce in the East Village were held hostage by a man who sprayed kerosene on them and then threatened to set them afire early [Sunday&#93, according to the police. Three people and the suspect were shot.” — Al Baker, The New York Times.
