There's a for rent sign on the space that previously housed the bar Heathers. (Not sure how long the sign has been up here between Avenue A and Avenue B. This is the first that we noticed it.)
As you can see, the landlord doesn't want a bar or restaurant here...
Not surprising, considering that Heathers had a history of complaints and controversy.
Heather Millstone opened Heathers in 2005, and the bar quickly became a lightning rod for noise complaints. (The Times had a lengthy article in January 2007 about the ongoing noise issues between the bar and neighbors.)
New owners took over the bar during the summer of 2012. The bar abruptly closed for good last October.
We didn't spot a listing online. Looks like you'll have to send an email to the landlord if you have an interest in the space.
