Earlier this year, when Icon Realty became the new owner of 57 Second Ave., a reliable source told us that the two retail tenants here between East Third Street and East Fourth Street would be closing in the months ahead.
Alex Shoe Repair shut down at the end of July. The cobbler had been paying $4,000 in monthly rent. The new asking price is $14,000 a month.
Now Allied Hardware has posted closing signs … with sales on everything (but keys) …
We're not sure what the family who runs Allied pays in monthly rent. According to the listing at the Icon website, the new asking rent is $26,000 … with a space "perfect For: Restaurant, bar, clothing store, salon, and all general retail uses."
