Look, activity at 100 Avenue A

Several residents were startled by this sight yesterday at 100 Avenue A... A truck! Traffic cones!

Because nothing has basically happened since East Village Farms closed in February 2012. The city disapproved the first round of plans to renovate the space, including adding a "dwelling unit" and roof garden on the upper floors.

The sidewalk outside the storefront has mostly been used to accommodate some people in need of a place to sleep this past year.

Anyway, we're hearing some funny rumors about all this... Maybe you have too?

OK, EV, don't tease me with the "funny rumors"... spill 'em!

I still miss this deli every damn day.

Ugh...I miss this place so much. My bedroom window faced this deli and I used to stare out my window when I couldn't sleep at night watching the late night antics of this deli, Stromboli pizza and Niagara. Jimmy, the deli guys made the BEST sandwiches, plus he was a nice guy. I miss seeing him every day.

Though I kinda like the current state of the deli too and wish that wouldn't change, but.....
