The for-real Target signage has arrived at EVGB

A tipster shared the above photo from Friday at 500 E. 14th St. at Avenue A ... the wraparound Target signage has arrived on the corner space (Previously just a small sign marked the location for construction workers.)

Now, though!

As reported last summer, the small-format Target will cover two levels here, selling men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, food (with grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, beverages), health and beauty and electronics. Etc.

The East Village Target has an expected July opening date.

Oh, and about EVGB. That's short for "East Village's Greatest Building," the nickname that Extell Development bestowed upon this retail-residential complex.

So are the same people who constantly sing K-Mart's praises going to bemoan Target joining the neighborhood? Bet they will!

Target will be a great asset. But why are they selling packaged fresh food? Do they have a bodega aisle? Maybe they'll hire some guys to sell loosies and drink from open containers, too. God, corporate thinking.

After the downsizing that has taken place at K-Mart on Astor Place I welcome the addition of a Target.

I only like buildings that are winning. Sad!

Funny this signage was aggressively tagged within 24 hours. Welcome to EV Target!

14th Street is already disgusting, might as well have a somewhat useful Target here. Now I don't have to cross 14th St to go to Duane Reade or CVS.
