In other gas station news: Mobil reopens on Avenue C and East Houston

[Photo from Saturday]

The station was back in business Saturday morning after a 9-day closure … the State of New York seized the property on June 19 for nonpayment of taxes.

While the station was closed, at least one local person/blogger stood around the lot taking photos.

Speaking of this lot… back in March, Hakimian Property filed plans (waiting for approval) to erect a 9-story mixed-use building on the site. Plans call for 45 residential units and 4,550 square feet of commercial space.

The Times reported in October 2013 that construction would begin when Mobil's lease expires in two years — roughly toward the end of 2015.

I love gas stations. They're open all night, there's always something going on, they have that eerie glow, they're low enough to let you see some sky, and I'm gonna miss 'em.
