Work continues at 54 Second Ave. at Third Street, home of the beloved "Crazy Landlord" sign.
Despite some rumors ("garment store with sex toys"!), the storefront will be home to the new East Village location of The Bean, currently housed on First Avenue and Third Street... just a block away. Permits with the DOB confirm the new tenant.
While walking by yesterday, EV Grieve regular jdx noted a new name on the buzzer...
We don't have all the details on the move to Second Avenue. The Crazy Landlord did confirm the new tenant. We'll have more later...
Meanwhile, the Bean is finalizing their plans to open an outpost on 12th and Broadway as well.
