Boarding up the former Papaya King on St. Mark's Place
On Wednesday, workers boarded up the entrance to the former Papaya King on St. Mark's Place at Third Avenue...
Not sure why this happened ... perhaps to prep for the eventual demolition of this assemblage of buildings on the corner. (Background here.) There aren't any demo permits on file yet. Plus, the timeline isn't clear on when this corner will come down. The Continental around the corner announced that they would close after August 2018.
Or maybe the plywood went up to keep people from camping out inside the front entrance...

Papaya King closes on St. Mark's Place ahead of new development
The Continental says it will close late next summer
