The corner of 10th and C ripe for something new and trendy?

Christine's Deli and Grocery on Avenue C at 10th Street has closed... the inside has been gutted.... and the roll-down gate was freshly painted by workers this week...



There's always the Avenue C Deli on the corner of 12th Street, though be mindful about loitering....



Anyway, as for 10th and C... I'm curious about the future here... what direction will it go? Something for the community (grocery, laundromat, etc.) or, say, another bar to complement the nearby Sunburnt Cow and East Village Tavern?

I know the owner William. He also owns the liquor store next door on 10th Street. He is switching the two stores. The liquor store will move to Ave C and the Bodega will be on 10th. He said he was going to make it a high end Bodega with meats/cheeses. He said he makes more $$ off the liqour store and needed a bigger space.

Thanks for the info, anon. I'm happy to hear about these plans.

Wow. That could be a whole lot worse. Sounds like a good change, actually, as that was possibly the shittiest deli on Avenue C.
