Rent hike forcing Sunrise Cleaners to close on East 3rd Street
Sunrise Cleaners at 60 E. Third St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue will be closing soon.
An EVG reader and Sunrise customer reports that the landlord (Tomar Equities) offered Susan the owner a 5-year-lease renewal with a 66-percent rent increase. Which is insane and the reality around here.
A listing shows an asking rent of $4,500 for 525 square feet.
