Two weeks ago it was our neighbors at Gothamist complaining that the pretty Manhattan Bridge Archway right outside their office door was overrun with highway brigands, and this afternoon news comes via nabe blog DumboNYC that the Sovereign Bank just two blocks away was robbed by two armed men not three hours ago. Basically, our dear little Dumbo is Rock Ridge from Mel Brooks’ Blazzing Saddles, right down to the final reveal that the whole place is basically just one big studio backlot.
