Former Ruby Lounge becoming a residence on East Second Street

Over on Second Street between Avenue A and Avenue B, there's activity at the long-dormant space that once housed something called Ruby Lounge.


And, in a bit of a surprise, it appears that another bar or retail space won't be coming soon here. According to the DOB, workers are converting the space into residential use.

Soon, everything will be condos and bars and everyone will be a bartender. Manhattan will be re-zoned as a bar-only island and the rest of the country will go dry. Tourists will fly here to drink for a week and then be sent to North Brother Island to rehab. The pretzel industry will lead the new economic boom.
