An ongoing impromptu demonstration across the street from my high-rise 
building on Manhattan’s exclusive upper east side reminded me of a 
series of posts I started on real estate. Kaia, a tiny wine bar that 
featured mostly appetizers native to South Africa that was shut down by 
the tax collectors, has prompted its loyal customers to post statements 
of solidarity on its windows next to the tax collector’s scary looking 
red sign. In all the years I have been living in Manhattan, I have never 
seen such a proclamation even though bankruptcy notices are omnipresent.
