Cloud99 Vapes has closed at 50 Second Ave. between Second Street and Third Street.

As you can see, the space has been cleared out...

This had been expected. As reported back in October, the shop announced it was closing amid the public health crisis involving vaping products.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a total of 2,711 hospitalized e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury cases or deaths have been reported from 50 states, the District of Columbia, and two U.S. territories (Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands) as of Jan. 21.

As MSN reported last fall, business at Cloud99 had dropped by 70 percent.

In December, Mayor de Blasio officially signed into law a ban on the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes and flavored e-liquids in wintergreen, mint and menthol flavors. The ban goes into effect on July 1.

Cloud99 Vapes opened in 2015 at the site of the former Yoo's Convenience Store.
