However, they didn't leave a forwarding address. Nicky's lives on! Turns out that the quick-serve shop moved across the street to 216 Avenue A, a former spa, as the top pic shows. (Thank you to the readers who mentioned this!)
The Nicky's signage arrived on that new storefront late last week.
This marks the third East Village home for Nicky's, which originally debuted on Second Street in 2009.
