Y.S. Tires at 97 Allen Street Threatened

Posted on: June 30th, 2010 at 6:12 am by

Those sidewalk mechanic shops that randomly dot the neighborhood are an interesting breed.  Lacking any proper garage or lot, vehicles are mostly serviced curbside, directly in the path of oncoming traffic.  Case in point, Y.S. Tires at 97 Allen Street.

Just the other day, a truck with a flat drove up and received immediate attention.  Upon arrival, a crew of plainclothes workers quickly exited the shop and began work.  All the tools needed were nearby – traffic cones, lug wrenches, car jacks, air hoses, etc.

But now it appears that Y.S. Tires might be threatened.  We heard it through the Craig-vine that the tire shop is month-to-month at this point, and is most likely on the outs.  If the posting is to be believed, the landlord is seeking a replacement tenant that could possibly occupy both storefronts at 97, including the backyard.  Priced to rent at $3,995 per month.

DALENCY & BROOME, VERY HEAVY FOOT TRAFFIC, TRENDY LOCATION, STEPS AWAY FROM ART GALERIES, BOUTIQUES, ACCESS TO ALL TRANSPORTATION ; F,B,J,M,Z,D,Q;TRAINS, GOOD FOR ANY UES 1200 SQ FT WITH BSMNT, ACCESS TO BACKYARD; WE COULD MAKE BOTH STORES AVAILABLE (CURRENTLY THERE IS A TIRE SHOP WITH A MONTH TO MONTH LEASE)

Of course it would help to spell Delancey (hello, Dalency) correctly.
