The 6-story building on the NW corner of Avenue B and Houston has been empty/abandoned for years.
Recapping some of what we know (and have reported) about 6 Avenue B. The liquor store in the retail space closed when the owner passed away in 2009 at age 89. (Chico created the tribute to her in February 2010.)
And as previously noted, this is one of the abandoned buildings owned by the estate of the mysterious team of Arthur and Abraham Blasof, now both deceased.
And that sidewalk bridge has been up for YEARS. (Six? Seven?)
However, there are newish work permits on file for the address, some related to the (AT&T?) antennas on the roof. Workers have been inside the building lately.
EVG contributor Stacie Joy looked inside the other day. In the photos below, you'll see the state of the place.
"The old parquet wood floors are beautiful and the tile work is amazing," Stacie said. "Doubtful it will be preserved but it was something to see."
