Following yesterday's exciting news of Starbucks coming to the old Blind Tiger space on Hudson Street, a Curbed operative emails regarding another legendary West Village drinking establishment:
The Massey Knakal for sale sign went up in front of Chumley's today, but I don't see the property on their website. They sold 82-86 Bedford Street (which includes Chumley's along with 29 residential units) for $6.9 million in cash back in 2005. I wonder what the collapsed chimney will do for the asking price.Given the assumption that Chumley's has a long-term lease on the space, no reason for panic. Right. Right? OH SWEET JESUS SAVE CHUMLEYS IS NOTHING SACRED KILL US NOW.
