[Photo from July 18]
Throughout the summer a crew had been working on the second floor at 130 E. Seventh St. ... in the space above Miss Lily's.
All that was finally cleared up a few weeks ago... and over the weekend, for lease signs arrived in the second-floor windows offering Park View Office Suites ...
..the sign says from $1,500 (a square foot? Well, we shouldn't joke.)
We haven't spotted a listing for the offices anywhere. The number goes to an answering machine.
The 7-floor building on the southwest corner has been through a luxury makeover in recent years. The new residential rentals were fetching $16,995 and $14,995. Longtime corner restaurant 7A closed in January 2014... and later replaced by Miss Lily's.
Public records show that the University of the Streets sold the building to Park Corner Development, LLC in September 2011 for $5 million.
After 46 years of music and arts programs here, the University of the Streets cleared out of the second floor in April 2015 and relocated to the Bronx.
Thanks to Steven for the photos
The address was home to L.W. Schwenk… and here's a photo dated July 24, 1914, titled "Depositors at failed bank."
