[Workers dismantle the former Sock Man space on Feb. 3]
As we first reported last month, The Sock Man closed on St. Mark's Place after nearly 33 years here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
Now that space at No. 27 is for rent.
Here are some details via the listing at Sinvin:
-All quality uses considered, including food
-Easy to vent
-Landlord presenting as a vanilla box with HVAC and 200 amp electric panel
-New storefront to be installed
-Sorry, no tattoo or piercing parlors
-On the best block of St. Marks, busy 24/7
The asking rent for the 500-square-foot space (with another 300 square feet for basement storage) is $9,000, per the listing.
Owner Marty Rosen was apparently facing an unmanageable rent hike from new landlord Raphael Toledano.
Rosen has said he hopes to find another space in the neighborhood. Meanwhile, the Sock Man remains open for business at www.thesockman.com.
