A retail vacancy at 51 Astor Place



Back in September 2014, hotelier-developer Ian Schrager became the first ground-floor tenant at 51 Astor Place/the IBM Watson Building/Death Star with the sales office and model apartment for his incoming hotel-condo tower at 215 Chrystie just below East Houston.

That's all built and mostly sold now (just one residence out of 11 left!), so they've packed up and left...



Leaving a nice space for rent on the Ninth Street and Third Avenue side...



There haven't been any for rent signs posted just yet ... and no word on what might be joining the building's other retail tenants — CVS, Flywheel Sports, Orangetheory Fitness, Bluestone Lane Coffee and Chopt.

Thoughts/wishes on a new tenant? Duane Reade? An all-ages venue for unsigned bands?

You can finally shop at 51 Astor Place!

When the other side was empty for a while, my kid thought bumper cars would be terrific.

I'm inclined to agree.

The EVG commemorative gift shop. It could sell models of buildings long gone and action figures of all the evil landlords. Collect them all!

Up vote for indoor dog run viewable from street! Please no more salad-focused fast food!

There hasn't been talk of a Fishmonger in a while...

A bubble tea shop would be nice, or perhaps a Dickensian workhouse for soot-faced orphan children. Nope, let's go with bubble tea.
