The East Village Farms on Avenue A between Seventh Street and Sixth Street is on the clock... we now understand that the closing date has been moved to Feb. 5, with a sale starting next Wednesday. (The owners will take any leftover inventory to their new store on 48th Street.)
The staff here says the building's owner will demolish the structure. There still aren't any permits on file with the DOB ... and still no official word from the landlord.
Anyway, as you know, the space was originally a theater in operation from 1926-1959. EV Grieve reader Lambert Jack got a look at the sort-of-secret theater a few weeks back ...
Now, East Village-based photographer Kevin Shea Adams shares his photos from a recent trip inside the bowels of the store. (You can read his post and see more photos here.)
Find more of Kevin's photography here.
