CH in the News

It’s time to check in with other local blogs and news sites to see what else is going on locally:

  • One Greene Sushi not compensating its workers [The Local] (I have never liked their sushi, personally)
  • $1 million price cut at 380 Clinton Ave [Brownstoner] (Imagine being able to make a million dollar price cut and still make a profit.)
