Umm... a laundromat in the East Village closed and they're giving away unclaimed clothes. It seems that the closure was sudden—and due to a rent hike—so the owner has posted a sign proclaiming, "Free clothes! (Before we donate to thrift/Salvation Army)." The laundromat is at 204 E 10th Street if you're interested. [EV Grieve]
