Teary letters to landlord show that local children are devastated over closure of Silver Spurs
Silver Spurs closed earlier in the month on Broadway and Ninth Street; its contents already auctioned off.
Word was that the reliable 34-year-old diner lost its lease… with the landlord asking for a big rent hike.
The news apparently hasn't sat well with some local kids (or one kid) … whose sad letters now adorn the empty diner's front door…
Here's part of one letter:
"Dear owner of building. You should be ashamed that you put the rent up! Silver Spurs was one of the most special places in the world. A lot of people had heart touching moments there. And no matter what you do we will will always remember the days we were there. So please reopen the restaurant."
Sad… but at least the children can still go to the Silver Spurs location on LaGuardia Place. Or maybe it's time to branch out to the Odessa.
Thanks to EVG friend Sue Palchak-Essenpreis for the tip.
