The Tuck Shop closed its location on St. Mark's Place near Avenue A on July 7. According to the sign on the door, the shop closed for a variety of reasons, including "Gentrification ... Rent is too damn high!, Laziness/ennui, Albany/Bloomberg and Gluten-free people."
Word here is that the storefront will become home to Box Kite Coffee, a shop operated by barista Cora Lambert.
Paperwork filed ahead of last night's CB3/SLA committee meeting shows a change in ownership at 115 St. Mark's Place.
A recent issue of Imbibe magazine had an item about Box Kite Coffee opening in NYC...
We haven't heard official confirmation of this... and there's no other word on a possible opening date.
