Many people on the Upper West Side are familiar with the mannequin woman who has been standing outside Paper House on Amsterdam Avenue between 72nd and 73rd for years.
Well, the Paper House recently moved one block north to Amsterdam between 73rd and 74th, and last week someone complained to building management that the sidewalk mannequin needs to go.
“They said that it wasn’t appropriate for the block. On the day that I took it away, three people came in and asked where she went,” says owner Kenneth Yoo.
Now she lives in the basement by herself.
“She’s lonely,” says Ken. “She wants to go back to work and do her job again.”
