Eviction Notice Served at 208 Bowery
While the Federal-style house at 206 Bowery grabs all the headlines for its swift attention at the Landmarks Preservation Commission, its immediate neighbor to the north isn’t as lucky. A tipster informed us yesterday that eviction notices were served to 208 Bowery.
The Marshal’s eviction paper is now plastered on the front door. We received this message, along with the following photo, “the 206 ground floor looks open for business, and something seems to be moving forward for the upper part of 208 Bowery.” And the company evicted from the ground level is the showroom branch of Yasakart.
Nevertheless, it seems that Yasakart is the mystery commercial tenant about which we speculated last month. Signs on the shuttered gates of 208 beckon customers to head next door to 206 for their chair and table needs. The whole situation could give way at any moment, though. If 206 Bowery is not landmarked, then both structures might not survive. So all this just feels like a temporary fix. Fingers crossed.
