Another day, another smoke shop reveal... this time for Runtz Tobacco at 14 First Ave. between First Street and Second Street. (Thanks to the EVG reader for the pic!)
As far as we can recall, the last tenant in this storefront was the salon One Plus One
(not to be confused with the bar One and One a storefront away).
The landlords in our neighborhood will rent to anybody who puts up the security deposit. I bet the UES isn’t infested with these smoke shops.
Just what we needed …..
Its been robbed already...
"Police are looking for a gun-packing trio who knocked off a new East Village smoke shop to the tune of thousands of dollars.
According to cops, on Wed., Aug. 3, just before 1 a.m., three men entered Runtz Tobacco, at 14 First Ave., between E. First and E. Second Streets, and one of them aimed a black firearm at the 20-year-old male employee’s stomach. They then swiped roughly $3,000 from the register and $2,400 worth of CBD."
