Reader report: Martial arts for the empty storefront on 11th and C
EVG regular Jose Garcia shares some intel about activity at the long-empty storefront on the southwest corner of 11th Street and Avenue C.
The word from a worker here: A martial arts studio is opening soon ... and it will take up the full corner retail spot.
The space has been empty since August 2017, when the New York Health Choice (aka Eastside Market) gave it up after nearly five years in business.
The previous tenant, the Monk Thrift Shop, closed in December 2010. At the time, neighbors heard that — why not? — a bank branch would open here.
