Time to send John Moore over to Stratton's Hardware to see if the locals are buying rope.
The NY Post reports sale of soft rope is up as women read the summer pot boiler "Fifty Shades of Grey" with its suggestions about experimentation with bondage (that means being tied up as an act of sexual submission, but John would be better explaining that.)
Maybe that West Marine store on outer Arsenal would be a better place to shop for the ladies....Looks like the place you'd be buying a Father's Day gift and could just pick up some rope (they call it 'line').
Of course, this may be one of those stories best left to big city media.
