Small Village Businesses Threatened; Bergen House 50% Sold

New, 11 comments

EAST VILLAGE—Is the end nigh for the East VIllage's Excel Custom Framing and E.V. Cheese Shop on Third Avenue between 9th and 10th streets? A tipster sends word that the two long-time institutions are getting the boot after their landlord reportedly entered into a "handshake deal" with neighboring tenant Duane Reade, who wants to expand its existing location on the corner of Third Avenue and 10th Street. "Both of these small businesses are very important to the community," the tipster writes, "We have a large Walgreens on Astor Place 1 block away." Although the story is a bummer, it's not an unfamiliar one to New York City. [CurbedWire inbox]
