The most important news here isn’t that the newest Subway outpost at 66 Delancey opens for business today. Or that the requisite grand opening sigange and stream of colorful flags are in place. No, no.  Rather, another location is currently in works just a few blocks to the northwest.  It has come to this, folks. Subway franchises are multiplying like a colony of horny rabbits.

Indeed, it appears the Avalon Chrystie mothership will soon birth the new Subway at 229 Chrystie Street.  But not just yet. Even though DOB work permits were acquired last month, there is not too much happening behind those dusty windows.  Some ladders, miscellaneous buckets, and such are lying around.  Coupled with the adjacent Whole Foods, the suburbanification of this plot of real estate is complete.

And here is a graphic from the restaurant locator on their official website which illustrates the number of locations in the immediate vicinity.

The smell of trash will soon be replaced with the scent of faux-fresh bread.  It’s pretty much a lose-lose.
