A few items to note from recent weeks...
Blue 9 Burger closed down on Third Avenue between 12th Street and 13th Street back in February after 14 years... the for rent sign only recently arrived. The rent is negotiable, per the listing, which notes "No Cheesesteaks, No Coffee, No Pizza."
Rustico closed at the beginning of March on First Avenue between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. The banner via broker CBRE has been up for a few weeks now, though there isn't any sign of the listing online.
The space that housed Guayoyo, the family-owned Venezuelan restaurant, has sat empty on the corner of First Avenue and Fourth Street for two-plus years now.
The space was cleaned up early last week... and the Icon Realty sign has been removed... perhaps a sign of a new tenant...

A lamp for Clay Pot has arrived outside 58 St. Mark's Place between First Avenue and Second Avenue. The restaurant will be serving "traditional Hong Kong style open-flame cooked clay pot rice" when it opens later this spring.

East Side Ink moved one storefront to the south at the end of December here on Avenue B between Seventh Street and Sixth Street.
Per the listing, "all uses considered." No word on the rent.
The custom frame shop that opened in March 2016 at 36 Third Ave. has closed here between Ninth Street and 10th Street... the sidewalk bridge that has been up the whole time likely didn't help business...
