Subway taking over from Ben & Jerry's on Third Avenue
In recent weeks, the for rent sign came down and contractors arrived at the former Ben & Jerry's on Third Avenue between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street. The ice cream shop closed after 22 years here back in September 2010, as Jeremiah Moss first reported.
The space has remained vacant since then.
We asked Richard Colligan, proprietor of Metroplis next door, if he knew who the incoming tenant was.
Yes he does — it will become a Subway.
So this will reverse the trend of Subways closing around here ... like the franchise on East 14th Street and the one on Second Avenue near East Ninth Street ...
