It appears that the quick-serve Pink Bear shop has closed on 14th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
Several readers (H/T Shiv and Gojira) noted the gate has been down of late during announced business hours. Both Google and Yelp report that Pink Bear has permanently closed. The phone is also disconnected.
Pink Bear opened back in the spring of 2016, and served a variety of rolled ice cream, not to mention traditional rice and noodle dishes.

The coming soon signage is up at 226 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue...the storefront will be home to a Pink Bear Ice Cream Shop...
This will be Pink Bear's second location...the other is in Flushing.
There's not much info about the products at the Pink Bear Facebook page, just that their ice cream is made "with 100% fresh fruit. Tasty & Healthy!" They also advertise serving ice cream rolls.
This will be the second new shop serving rolled ice cream in the neighborhood... Lab 321, which will sell their variation of the traditional Thai street food, is opening at 27 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
As for the East 14th Street storefront, the space last housed Exodus 14, the sneaker consignment shop that quietly closed up earlier this year.
