Former Banco Popular space for rent on Houston and B

From the not breaking news department... the retail space at 310 E. Houston St. at Avenue B is for rent. 

The for-lease signs have been up since the spring, but the corresponding listing only just arrived online

This was the Banco Popular branch, which, per trends, shuttered in late January. 

According to the RIPCO listing, there are two available here — totaling nearly 4,000 square feet. 

Comments per the listing: 
• Space will be delivered in white-box condition 
• No food uses considered 
• Divisions considered 

And pricing is available upon request. 

What would you like to see here? Record store? Zine shop? Or we could bring back the Gaseteria, which closed here in 2005 when the lot was going condo...

It would be super awesome if the landlord made any effort to prevent the building from getting completely tagged up and looking like garbage that's for sure

Bring back Blackout Books, the anarchist bookstore at 50 Ave. B
from 1992 to 2000. Anarchy = Peace.

How about a bike shop that you can actually go into that doesn't have stupid expensive prices like the shop on 2nd near 4th St.

why should the landlord spend money keeping the building clean? it will be re tagged immediately after it is cleaned up. easier to just leave it as it is until it is leased and a tenant is moving in. unless some neighborhood group wants to volunteer labor and materials.

I, for one, would welcome that! Or maybe Kmart could squeeze in here with the remaining mannequins?

A gas station please................
Over the last forty years, the EV has lost all seven of the gas stations that it had until now there aren't any at all in the EV. You have to go to 23rd Street and the East River to buy gas in the area and they are charging $1.50 more than the national average! They sell regular for $4.99 !!!!
