Here lies the Blarney Cove

While we're on the topic of bars that we used to like … we were walking on East 14th Street just east of Avenue A on Friday … and noticed that the ongoing demolition here has now claimed the former Blarney Cove space.

[Moment of silence]

The Blarney Cove closed for good in June 2013. But we got the sign.

Given the water on the site, perhaps we can call it The Blarney Cove. Or The Blarney Cove Cove.

As you know oh so well, many of the businesses on East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B either relocated or closed to make way for two, 7-floor retail-residential buildings.

Previously on EV Grieve:
New 7-floor buildings for East 14th Street include 150 residential units

There hasn't been a lot of rain lately and the groundwater table in that area (although not too far down from the ground surface) isn't *that* high.

That lagoon there is weird. Not a good sign.

God, the East Village has really become one depressing homogenous boring place.

Maybe that's not water, maybe it's beer.

It would be fun to take a closer look at remnants , I remember the Raven demo, I told workers to look out for money and very small baggies. I knew a certain partner there that stashed stuff like that behind bricks in basement and bathroom. sure enough they told me later they had found a lot of both!
