Cleaning out the long-closed liquor store on Avenue B and East Houston
Our current fascination is the long-vacant building on the northwest corner of Avenue B and East Houston... We noted on Jan. 9 that workers have been cleaning out the space.
And in the retail space, the liquor store has been closed since the owner passed away in the fall of 2009. This week, though, a tipster told us that the workers were now cleaning out that space as well...
And, as you can see, it is mostly still fully stocked...
The tipster also said that the building is for sale. We didn't spot any listing for it. Yet. Have more details about the sale? Please let us know via the EV Grieve email.
So, for the time being, we'll continue to document the building as it is now... before it is likely refurbished and painted the Renovated Building Color of Choice — gray.
