As noted a few weeks back, Alphabet Pizza and Deli will be the first post-Chase-branch tenant at 20 Avenue A.
Since then, workers have been busy dividing up the rest of the space here at Second Street, an exciting development for 20 Avenue A watchers (there are two of us in the group)...
There are now three storefronts here... the arrows will guide you to the respective doors...
It's not known who the other two tenants might be. Some possibilities COULD be: Another pizza and deli place.
Chase vacated this storefront in November 2015. There have been six or seven different brokers for the space in these past three years.

The retail-wine bar possibilities for the former Chase space on Avenue A and East 2nd Street
The retail space at 20 Avenue A no longer looks like a bank branch
Another broker for the former Chase branch on Avenue A
Pizza for 20 Avenue A
Considering that the trend has been toward bigger floor plans, I see this as GREAT F'N NEWS
Oy..I'm starting to MISS the Bank.
the smaller footprint will keep out a big chain store but don't forget Duncan and Subway like chains. I'll be optimistic on this one.
I predict that this is what will happen with more and more of the massive storefronts that developers are putting in the street levels of their new developments - there are only so many interested corporations and chain stores to go around, and there isn't a mom-and-pop in the world that needs 75,000 square feet; in order to finally rent out the spaces, so the inhabitants of these shiny new boxes don't have to walk by dark, empty windows, they'll break them up in an effort to fill them.
Good news. Now we need the East Village Special District proposal to keep moving along to limit chain stores and bars etc
Well at least the landlords are starting to move a sane direction... Now we just need a vacancy tax to punish landlords for sitting on properties for 3 years!!!
