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.

I hate to be "that person" but all of those letters appear to be written by the same person/child.
Same who closed it posted propaganda kids letters.
The other Silver Spurs location on West Houston and Laguardia remains open. They own the building (I know this 'cause I'm a tenant), so I don't they'll be going anywhere anytime soon.
I hate to be that guy, but… Fake!
I'm sure this wise and thoughtful landlord knows what these sad little children really want. Instead of a fun place to eat ice cream and have birthday parties, how about a nice little nail salon with a dozen motorized pedicure stations, or perhaps they'd like a cute little bank branch with nice shiny new ATMs with bright flashing lights, or maybe if those kids are really lucky they'll get a beautiful new Duane Reade where they can go to play with their friends and share wonderful childhood memories about running past the mile-long aisles of Bounty 12 packs and holiday clearance items. And if they're really, really lucky, they'll get what every kid really wants in their neighborhood: a brand new sushi restaurant
What drama queens!
We lose another prosperous, useful business in the neighborhood because of landlord greed. They should just call that stretch "Fro Yo Way" because dumb chains like 16 Handles are the only ones who can afford the inflated rents.
...WAXING salon. TANNING salon. SALON salon. SALON cafe salon.
What's really sad is that probably wasn't a kid.
I can't wait for Tampon Hut!
The Houston street location has been selling murder. Burgers for years.
