Femmegems, the hip and fun jewelry and accessories shop at 89 Greenwich Avenue is missing their beloved piggy. According to a sign in the window, for ten years their cast-iron pig has stood sentry outside the door from Nolita to Greenwich.
But, alas, the necklace-laden pig has vanished.
Greenwich is overall such a safe place. When shops close up for the night, storekeepers don’t pull metal security grills over the display windows. Planters and benches aren’t chained to buildings.
And still, the signature cast-iron piggy outside Femmegems is missing and the store is offering a reward in jewels. There is a tip line 203 861-2431.
