95 Avenue A now free of construction netting and sidewalk bridge
Workers today removed the rest of the construction and sidewalk bridge that has encased 95 Avenue A for several months.
Apparently the structural repairs (sinking building???) here at East Sixth have been made.
During the rehab, Gin Palace, one of the three bars (along with Cienfuegos and Amor y Amargo) that make up the retail component of the building, closed for service last November.
As the Times reported last week, work gutted the Gin Palace interior. So co-owner Ravi Derossi is taking the opportunity to re-imagine the space, opening a "tiki-influenced" bar later next month called Mother of Pearl.
