Signs of new businesses on 3rd Avenue, and an H Mart update
Workers have been refurbishing the space for storefront signage in the long-vacant shops along the base of NYU's Alumni Hall on Third Avenue between Ninth Street and 10th Street...
Not sure if this means some new businesses are in the works for this block. There is, however, one new merchant on the way. As we first reported in August, branding for H Mart, an Asian-American supermarket chain based in Lyndhurst, N.J., arrived in the front window of the former Birdbath bakery and Citi Habitats office next door.
H Mart reps said that they do not have a tentative opening date for the East Village at this time. This will be the third H Mart in Manhattan (the others are on West 32nd Street and Broadway on the Upper West Side). Overall H Mart has more than 70 outposts in the United States and Canada.
