Clearing out Third Rail Coffee
Workers were spotted clearing out Third Rail Coffee yesterday on 10th Street ... presumably bringing an end to the cafe here just west of Second Avenue.
There hasn't been any official notice about a closure. Third Rail Coffee had shut down at the start of the NY PAUSE in March.
Earlier this summer, we spotted a Termination of Lease notice on the door that stated rent was due for April, May and June on the storefront. (This despite the state’s eviction moratorium.)
Third Rail, an outpost of the original on Sullivan Street, opened here in the summer of 2013. It was a nice spot that offered views of the historic St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery across the street.
Thanks to Dan Scheffey for the photo!
