Grumpy Sock Seller Responds to Chloë Sevigny Dis


Marty Rosen, who owns the Sock Man on St. Marks Place, was recently described by patron Chloë Sevigny thusly: “I love that place, but the guy’s the grumpiest man on Earth. He’s like the Soup Nazi, but he sells socks.” And indeed, staffers there say that Rosen does grumpish things like steal their food and put trash in customers’ bags. [Ed.: WE LOVE THIS GUY!] But Rosen took Sevigny’s remarks in stride: “She still shops here, so I’m not going to say anything to dis her,” he said. Then added: “Maybe she was upset that I didn’t know who she was.” Touché, Sock Nazi. [NYDN via EV Grieve]
