Powerhouse Books evicted by caterers, rats to stay behind

“Catering/restaurant evildoers” are evicting Powerhouse Books, a bookstore and gallery, from its 68 Charlton St. space at the end of March. (Via #1.)

But the owners promise that the “new location will be even more spectacular than our quaint space on this wretched and blighted street (which, you should know, should there be a new restaurant or food prep place here, is infested with rats that can never be conquered — as we have learned in the past two years).”
