Duke's is gone


After our post on Monday about Duke's on Avenue C ... several readers confirmed that the neighborhood bar near East Eight Street closed at the beginning of the year. A walk by yesterday confirms this: The signs had been removed; and workers have started taking down the bar...

Aside from Banjo Jim's, this was the only decent bar on Avenue C. Bedlam? Summit? The Waylaid? Forget it.

What a shame, and such a loss for this part of the neighborhood. Anyone have an idea or insight as to what will become of the space?
