And on the opposite corner of Second Avenue and Seventh Street... seems like a long time ago (Aug. 7!) that we first mentioned this pending arrival.
Work picked up last week on the NE corner, where an outpost of Olde Brooklyn Bagel Shoppe is coming soon.
This will be the second location for the business, which opened in Prospect Heights in 2010. From their website: "Our bagels are hand-rolled, kettle boiled, and baked on premises — made the Olde fashioned way."
No word on an opening date.
The prime space has been empty since Sanshi Noodle House closed last summer after a year-plus in service.
Bar Virage closed here in December 2018 after 20-plus years.
