Resobox, a Japanese cultural center, opening in the former Edge space on 3rd Street
Back on Aug. 2, an EVG reader spotted workers putting up some decorations on the marquee at 95 E. Third St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue... the former home of the Edge.
For now, the signage looks like this...
The space will be home to the third NYC location of Resobox, a gallery, workshop (with a variety of classes) and café that celebrates Japanese culture. The first location opened in Long Island City in 2012. (The other location is in Chelsea.) You can read more about Resobox and its founders here.
For now, the Third Street location, until it's fully operational, is offering flower-arranging classes on Saturdays...
The Edge, a neighborhood bar, closed last September after 29 years in business.
