Purple reign: Incoming Taco Bell now looking more like a Taco Bell

The Taco Bell coming to the SW corner of Third Avenue and 13th Street is shaping up... the brand's dark purple (Pantone: PMS 2603 C) color now adorns the storefront ... not even clashing as much with the dinosaur mural as anticipated.

Signage is next ... then it shouldn't be too long before they serve up those new Cantina Crispy Chicken Tacos with avocado ranch dressing.

There are currently more than a dozen Taco Bells in NYC. (Fun fact! Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell in Downey, Calif., in 1962.)

As for this EV corner, Bluemercury, the luxury beauty retailer, closed here during the pandemic.

Anyone know the reason for the dinosaur? Curious. Also there is a picture/painting of a pig on 12th and 2nd. Above the 12th street Ale house, which happens to have a blue gorilla.

Sympathy to the residents now living above a grease factory.

Let's hope it's nothing worse than grease. Some of us still remember the ratpocalypse over on 6th Ave. & W. 3d.

And opening right next door to the stellar tex mex taco shop, Yellow Rose. These corporations have no shame.

Will make a point of getting my tacos next door at Yellow Rose.
