Well, there you have it.
Ever since Sushi Siam rolled its last piece of sushi and Spice put up plywood, it appears there is a bitter gang war over the turf on the Northeast corner of Vernon and 48th. The gangs included are the Bloodies, the Crisps and a new gang called “21″, perhaps named for 21st street? So far, the Bloodies are winning the battle with three tags, the Crisps have two tags and “21″ has one. We reached out to local gangbanger, Stewart “Beef Stew” Williams, and he said “curry and money are green but right now the only colors that matter are red, blue and black”.
Only time will tell which gang will win out, just be sure to rock the right color when Spice opens its doors…otherwise you’re guaranteed to get inundated with their take-out menu under your door all winter long!

Update: It seems like some readers think this is real…it’s not. What should have given that away? Well, there are no gangs called “Crisps” or “Bloodies” and any gangbanger who’s nickname is “Beef Stew” would probably be outcasted by the gang itself. Oh yeah, also, we’re not in the 80′s anymore in LIC. So please, don’t call the cops.
