Mars Bar condo conversion complete

As a follow-up from our post yesterday ... offering a glimpse of what this corner at Second Avenue and East First Street might look like one day with luxury housing on the way...



Oh, and EV Grieve regular Roger_Paw caught the artist in action. (You can find her post here.)


All this leads up to the bar's new art show starting Sunday (with BBQ!) ...


I remember what happened here last Easter. Read that here.

Thanks for linking my blog!

Hey, there's going to be an art show on Sunday for real??? I'll try to remember to go!

@Roger_Paw

You're welcome.

There is a new art show. Dunno what time it starts, tho.

How apropos - a big pile of garbage in front of a big pile of garbage.

Isn't there ANYONE out there who wants to move to NY and NOT live in luxury housing? Whence springs this obsessive compulsion to all things luxe?

Get with Bloomberg's program, Lisa. This is Luxury City now.

Wow, that's the scariest the Mars Bar has ever looked. Easter Sunday is coming up this week! Sadly it might be the last one. I'll be there for sure! Thanks for posting memories of last year there. My favorite night on the bar crawl!

Yes it is true that c-squat is getting a doorman. Why not?

So are, like, people above getting evicted too is this process, or is it just about the Mars Bar?
