Oh yes the former Caffe Bene storefront is still for rent

In recent weeks the for rent sign was no longer in the front window at 24 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, in what was the former Caffe Bene space. A few Former Caffe Bene Watchers wondered if the space had been leased.

However! The sign made its triumphant return this week, as the above photo shows.

Plus! The listing is finally now online at Eastern Consolidated. In case you are curious, the asking rent is $14,000 a month.

Caffe Bene closed back in April after 17 months in business.

During WW1 soldiers in the trenches were advised to not get too friendly with their fellow soldiers since it was likely they would be killed sooner or later and it was bad for moral to lose so many friends. This is how I feel about the retail spaces in the EV these days. Don't get too attached to any small business or restaurant. I'm not saying you shouldn't support them I just mean don't expect them to be here for more than a year.

That's just good advice in general. Some of the bloated egos around here could surely use a healthy dose of non-attachment. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
