The plywood arrived last week outside the former Russian Souvenirs shop on East 14th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
The work permits say that a coffee shop is in the works...
Unfortunately, there isn't any other information at the moment about who the tenant will be.
Curious what will become of the former signage. I always liked this one. (Maybe it will become the Russian Souvenirs Coffee Shop? Ha.)
The shop specializing in (Russian, duh) tchotchkes closed last July. The proprietor said that his rent had increased.
