It might not have technically occurred in the hellish heart of the Meatpacking District, but after having spent this week bemoaning a neighborhood drowning in hair gel, it's nice to see that the area's gritty glory days aren't forever lost:

Police are investigating the death of an unidentified man found clad in leather early Wednesday on a Manhattan street.
A dog-walker found the body along Hudson Street in the West Village, police said.
The man, believed to be in his early 40s, was wearing a leather mask, leather clothing and two collars, according to police.
Police said he was slumped over, with one of the collars hooked on the spike of a 4-foot fence.

And so the Meatpacking spirit lives on.
