Will the 6-shots-of-anything-for-$12 sign at the former Continental go down with the building?

We've already noted the arrival of the sidewalk bridge around the northeast corner of Third Avenue and St. Mark's Place ... as workers enter the next phase of demolition ...

The Continental was the last business here to close, wrapping it up on New Year's Eve.

The bar's six-shots-of-anything-for-$12 sign remains intact on the marquee under the sidewalk bridge...

We mentioned this on Twitter over the weekend. There was some interest in the sign...

And other things on the corner...

After retiring the live music in the fall of 2006, the Continental became home of the five-shots-of-anything-for-$10 promotion before that changed to five-shots-of-anything-for-$12 in the spring of 2017. (Then later six shots...)
