Zarin Fabrics’ Awning is Removed from 314 Grand Street; TD Bank Coming Soon

Posted September 22, 2014 at 9:22 am

Already with one multinational bank to its name, 314 Grand Street certainly didn’t need another; especially fifteen feet away. Anyone could tell you that. Though, such is life on the Lower East Side.
