Openings: Pawffice on St. Mark's Place

Photo by Steven

Manhattan Pawffice, a doggy daycare, debuted last week at 20 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

This is a sibling to Brooklyn Pawffice out in Williamsburg. 

As noted, No. 20known as the Daniel LeRoy House, was built in 1832. It received landmark status in 1971 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

Past lives of this subterranean space — info via Daytonian in Manhattan — include a theater-saloon called Paul Falk's Tivoli Garden in the 1870s... in the 1930s, the Hungarian Cafe and Restaurant resided here before becoming a temperance saloon called the Growler.

The Grassroots Tavern, the last tenant in this lower level where we spent many late afternoons and evenings, closed after 42 years in service following New Year's Eve 2017.

Good luck to their work at home neighbors out back.

Next door neighbor here. Already hearing a lot of dog barking.

If we're entitled to demand the city to be quiet *during the day* so we can work undisturbed, can I start with traffic?
