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.
