Mars Bar May Close Temporarily Due to Apartment Renovations
The bottom of Second Avenue put up a good fight, but may ultimate lose the war. No thanks to the Avalon mothership. The Local East Village reports today that BFC Partners, developers behind 48 Bond, is seeking approval to renovate the row of building between Houston and First Street for market rate apartments. If their bid is given the go-ahead, then the neighboring businesses along 9-17 Second Avenue will be temporarily closed. Including Mars Bar!
