Thanks to EV Grieve for tipping us off.
Upper West Siders received an ultimatum in a notice posted to a window on East 9th Street, where all important laws are posted in the City of New York. And that law demands the following — that we must listen to at least 200 hours of Fiona Apple before the end of the year and every year afterwards.
Perhaps undermining its authenticity, the poster depicts Fiona Gallagher, a character on the TV show Shameless played by Emmy Rossum.
In any case, the law seems reasonable and we’re planning to adhere to it. Fiona Apple’s music is emotionally deep but it also makes for easy listening. As Upper West Siders, we plan to do our part to get her back to the top of the charts.
