Moving day for the old Papaya Dog signage on 14th Street & 1st Avenue
Workers yesterday removed the (iconic, sort of?) Papaya Dog signage off the former hot dogeria on the NW corner of First Avenue and 14th Street... (thanks to @ptrbrckwll for the top photo and Kent Jones for this pic)...
So the big question: What's coming next to this space? (Work permits only mention renovation of an existing eating/drinking establishment, etc.) To answer the question: We don't know!
