[EVG photo from August]
The shop at 196 Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street closed back in August. (We never did hear a reason for the closure.)
And now the space is for rent. Here's the listing via LoopNet:
A Great retail space located in the heart of the East Village just off the corner of 12th Street. The space offers fantastic frontage of about18' with two display windows, 10' ceilings and nice open space. There is about 400 sf of space in the basement. Space can be vented for food use through the rear. All uses are considered.
This is a very hot area of the East Village with great restaurants, nightlife, retail and residential at the intersection.
The monthly asking rent for the 900-square foot space is $10,500.
