On Avenue B, East Village Fruit and Vegetable is gone, gutted



East Village Fruit and Vegetable closed at the end of the month on Avenue B between 13th Street and 14th Street.

As previously reported, the lease was up, and the owners couldn't make the increase in rent work. According to a longtime patron, the store owners also said that they wouldn't be able to compete with the new Target, which features a large grocery selection, on 14th Street at Avenue A.

In any event, workers have emptied out the space...



No word on a the space being for rent... or what might replace the previous longtime business...
