Auto Parts Store Fighting More Than One Battle

New, 13 comments

There has been some talk about the R&S Strauss auto parts store on the corner of 14th Street and Avenue C being on the market for a cool $13 million. And this rather humdrum part of 14th Street would be ripe for becoming the east side's very own Meatpacking District, if you substitute the charming cobblestones with...the ConEd plant. So, we were curious when we spotted a handwritten note on the front door of the store the other day, probably one of those "Dear loyal customers, we're closing/moving..." notes that seem to appear too frequently these days. And what did this sign say?

Okay! Now that we're protected from the petroleum pirates, uh, wiper blades anyone??EV Grieve
