The new annex is weeks in the making.  Ever since Grey Lady painted its namesake on the white marquee, contractors have been busy with the sliver space next door. Clearing out the previous contents and adding new furnishings to fit that whole New England sea shore feel.  Much like its predecessor, Down East is a grab-and-go counter featuring a host of seafood options. There’s oysters, fish sandwiches, lobster rolls, hot dogs, and frozen desserts.

The storefront snack shop is also backed by a hidden dining area of sorts. Later this month, owners will appear before Community Board 3 to extend their liquor privileges and hours of operation.
