We started wondering about the fate of one of our favorite bars outside the neighbor back in February when a developer bought up a good part of East 60th Street between Third Avenue and Lexington, including the building that houses the Subway Inn.
Now we know. Via Gothamist, we learned this morning that the place will close next month.
Here's the message on the Subway Inn's Facebook page:
Subway Inn Patrons,
As you might know, Subway Inn was established in 1937, and has been proudly serving customers since.
We are sad to inform you that Subway Inn will be closed for business on or about the 15th of August. That's not to say we aren't opening another location. Subway Inn WILL be relocate.
