As Eater first noted, the New York Film Academy is opening a cafe at the former (east) Astor Place Starbucks... Signs have gone up... Dunno if this will be open to the public or just Film Academy students...

By the way
Here, you'll find things that you may or may not be interested in about the East Village and other parts of New York City. Appreciating what's here while it's still here. Remembering what's no longer here. Wishing some things weren't here that are here.
We love tips
Have a story idea or tip about something happening in the East Village? Or maybe a photo? Or several photos? Or video! We'd love to hear about it. Or see it. Or something. Please go here to submit a tip.
