Terrifying Truffles Tribeca Dummies Move Lower, Plot Takeover
Oh hey, remember that hideous Truffles Tribeca apartment building on Desbrosses Street? And how they supplemented their contemptuous advertising with faceless dummies on the balconies, attempting to lure other dead souls into their luxury rentals? We noticed this weekend that the dummies have moved to the mezzanine level, are dressed with slightly more flair, and strike more defiant poses. We're not sure what to make of it. Did management worry that no one was noticing them way up there on the fourth floor? Or did they move down of their own accord? Will they soon pose amongst us, as momenti mori of the go-go real estate era? We think we saw one at a party Saturday; he seemed to whisper, "As you are, I was; as I am, you will be." Disturbing! -- and yet we remain willing to negotiate.
