The church is still there ... on Taras  Shevchenko (sp?) 
Place. Right up from McSorley's (of ee cummings' fame) is a  
shop that sells those subdividing Russian eggs. Sadly you 
can't take a  middle ground between beer and church anymore: 
the Kiev Restaurant (kept  running into Philip Glass there) 
on 7th and Second has closed. That's where  I learned about 
putting honey in black coffee, and the Cafe de la Pace on  
the other side of Second, unable to compete with the 
Starbucks, has  changed from a good writer's coffee shop to a 
yuppie restaurant. Eheu!  fugaces labuntur  anni.
