Coinciding with the ARTPOP album release in the fall is a new book on Lady Gaga, "Rivington Was Ours." The tome "is a memoir written by friend and confidant Brendan Jay Sullivan, and details the rise of the artist in the mid-aughts while she still lived at 176 Stanton Street. Capitalize on the recent history while you still can." [Bowery Boogie]
