The new-look 107 Avenue C

Workers recently painted over the Zum Schneider murals on the rolldown gates here on Avenue C and Seventh Street, as these photos by Steven show...

The Zum lettering came down on Feb. 27.

Local mural legend Chico created the gate art here back in August 2016...

The biergarten closed at the end of February after 20 years at 107 Avenue C. The co-op board here reportedly didn't offer the Zum team a lease renewal. Owner Sylvester Schneider has said he will reopen elsewhere in NYC.

No word on a new tenant for the space at No. 107, but someone always likes to say Starbucks.

Maybe a bank could afford the rent?

I heard a rumor that the owner(s) of that building are going to continue the restaurant on their own. (?)

They can continue anything they want but it will be under a different name. I guess they’re betting it’s the location that’s lucky, they can try to copycat

Why even debate a stupid rumor? Just from the "owner(s) of that building" it's pretty obvious that person doesn't know what he's talking about.
