The Village Voice building at 36 Cooper Square will become just another building. Hartz Mountain Industries has decided, as part of its renovation of the building, to take down the black-lettered "Village Voice" from the facade of the building, according to the alt weekly’s blog.
If the paper’s blog is anything to go by, staffers are less than pleased:
The plan is to make the place look "like it did years ago," [Hartz Mountain Assistant Vice President Brian] Chabrunn told the blog. He also says the removal of our name is "no secret" though, as we mentioned earlier, nobody told us.
