Taking another look at East Seventh Street

There's no shortage of turnover on the stretch of Seventh Street near Avenue A. Here's an update since the last time...

A small-plates place called Cure opened last week at was was briefly going to be the East Village Pie Lounge (which was briefly the Italian cafe Affettati...)



The space that briefly housed the Chocolate Bar is still for rent.



The Tiny Living store is closing...





The space next to Butter Lane Cupcakes is still for lease...



The former kiddie hair salon/boutique Locks 'n' Lads that closed in January is now an upscale clothing boutique called Red...



P.S.
During the renovation of Red, this fine-looking dummy was put out in the trash. Was curious if anyone took it...



P.S.S.

Two other storefronts — former boutiques — are available on the block...Including:

The Tiny Store was great--I think their web site will be selling still. They will let us know.

i kinda liked tiny too. btw, just to be a pain, there is no west 7th street, so no need to say "east" 7th. this was first pointed out to me rather brusquely by a cab driver two decades ago. i have been chastened ever since.

Oops! I've been telling people that McSorley's is on West Seventh Street all these years!

Meanwhile, noted!

Jeremiah it is funny that you say this--my friend was trying to get a cab to go to 7th street in the EV and the cabbie said 7th street is not a street and would not take him there.
