Ray's Candy Store featured in amNY

Thanks to EV Grieve reader Geoff for passing along a copy of Monday's amNY, which included a feature on Ray's Candy Store on Avenue A.

A few excerpts....

"If the landlord gives me more time and we have warm weather, I could make more money," said Alvarez, who turns 77 this month. "I work every day and I lose $200."


Barbara Chupa, who runs a local insurance company and has managed the property for 10 years, said it's unlikely that Alvarez will be on the street soon, because it can take a long time to legally kick someone out for nonpayment of rent.

"[But] I have to proceed because the owner can't let you stay there for nothing," Chupa said.

Of course, this is already dated given Bob Arihood's most recent report.
