Updated: What might be next for this 2nd Avenue storefront?

In recent months, the gate has been down in the north storefront at 128 Second Ave., and it appeared that Roasted NYC was, well, toasted. (We also spotted an eviction notice taped to the gate in March.)

Fast-forward to the other day... when the gate was (finally) up, and the space appears to either be ready for a new tenant or a for-lease sign here between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place. 

The coffee shop opened last summer, pivoting from the weed-related NYC Kind Cafe ... which took over for the short-lived Paint Puff "N" Peace in 2022 — one of the early unlicensed shops to arrive in the neighborhood.

Sorry to see any establishment in the neighborhood close but what were they thinking when they opened what with Porto Rico Coffee and Poetica so close and Le Fournil, La Cabra and Veselka a block away?
