The Nobletree Coffee closure saga continues here on Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place. After five-plus months in business, Nobletree Coffee abruptly closed on May 30.
According to a note from Nobletree, they were forced to close "because of the slow foot traffic at this location."
That reason didn't sit well with at least one person, who left this note on the door early last week:

"Please don't blame the neighborhood for slow foot traffic. Maybe it was your mediocre coffee and bad service?
East Village Residents
Well, that note didn't sit well with at least one other person, who then placed this note on the door...
East Village resident to note maker: Be real. The coffee was good. But the rents are too high!
To note maker. Please speak for yourself. Do not include the "EV residents" on your personal experience!!
