Updated: The 2nd Avenue BP station closes tomorrow

As we previously reported, the BP station on Second Avenue at East First Street is closing … tomorrow is the last day.

MRM Auto Repair, which leased space here, moved to West 38th Street last month.

As for what's next for the BP property here, a tipster tells us that a boutique hotel will eventually rise here. For now, though, this is still in the rumor stages — there aren't any building plans on file with the city at this time.

Meanwhile, the BP station on East Houston and Lafayette will eventually be replaced by luxury something.

The station will now close after the business day on July 6.

If a boutique hotel takes this spot then the same amount of taxis will be coming to this location in the new future. I could stand a luxury condo building but an f-ing hotel would break into new territory and be the expansion of the f-ing Bowery hipster tourist play land. Due to mid-level developers being priced out of, I can't believe I'm saying this, the luxurious Bowery out hood is looking like a bargain.

Eventually, of course, everything in this neighborhood will be luxurious! What a wonderful world!
