For sale signs went up this week at the Lower Manhattan Congregation Jehovah's Witness at 67 Avenue C near East 5th Street (above). According to the Massey Knakal listing for the property, the space "is ideal for a user, investor or developer and will be delivered vacant." Indeed; asking $2.2 million. Meanwhile, more property is available at 151 Avenue C between Ninth Street and 10th Street, a two-story property (featuring a not-so-secret speakeasy upstairs) with room to grow, as the listing suggests. With the addition in recent months of a few more-upscale eateries and high-end cheese shop, perhaps Avenue C is finally living up to the hype of becoming the next Avenue B?
