Familiar Burger-Klein sign has disappeared from Avenue A
[EVG photo from spring 2013]
When the sidewalk bridge and scaffolding arrived at 28 Avenue A last November, we wondered if the familiar Burger-Klein signage would remain. The floors about Gracefully between East Second Street and East Third Street are being converted into a New York Sports Club.
And this week, the Burger-Klein sign came down.
Perhaps the workers will return it after the renovations are complete. That could happen, right? Right?
Furniture seller Burger-Klein occupied the building as early as 1939. Read more about the history of the Burger-Klein building at Off the Grid.
