The Crocodile Lounge introduces its new clean, green awning

As noted earlier this month, the awning disappeared from the Crocodile Lounge, 325 E. 14th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue... apparently it was damaged by a strong gust of wind...


[April 2]

...Now, a reader on East 14th Street notes this afternoon that the new awning has arrived... and it's very green (and clean)...

I like the old awning better.

Why not an awning painted like a crocodile with the head leading into the entrance?

A foam crocodile on top a la whatever was on top of the old Continental and Lone Star Cafe (dinosaur former, lizard latter? I forgot.)

Use your imagination folks!

Because the drunken bros will smash it to pieces while their hos stand nearby taking duck face selfies in front of the carnage. There's no room for imagination here. Only drunken assholes.

I agree with the first comment, not the rude second one.

They should go even further though and see if they can get some kind of zoning variance for an entrance like this:

The new color is better but the pedestrian typeface is lazy and lousy. Original stylized typeface had a specific character. Now it looks like any old bar with an awning that I'd pass up.

Well, this one is more similar to the awning at their Alligator Lounge on Metropolitan Avenue; my guess is they wanted it to match.

New one's better all way around.

Wow, the new awning is really terrible. The crocodile lounge just lost some of its identity using that new type face.

New awning sucks. The old awning had a sort of, crocodile-y "E". If that makes sense.

Oh My God. If you don't like the awning go out and buy yourself a space, open a bar and put up your own awning. What bilge some people put up!
