Fire-Scorched Pinkberry on Spring Street Melts into Oblivion

There’s some bloodletting to report on the faddy fro-yo front today. Two downtown locations of Pinkberry are apparently donezo.
First. The embattled outpost at 41 Spring Street – which reopened six months ago after a fire-forced hiatus – just papered its windows and is no longer in service. Its business phone line is also terminated, and the Seamless page claims the franchise is no longer active. Looks suspiciously like the end of the road here.
This particular Pinkberry has been to hell and back in the last couple years. You’ll recall that on the evening of January 10, 2013, an arsonist set off a five-alarm blaze at 41 Spring after a fight with his baby momma. It quickly spread through the building, and elicited a response of some 200 firefighters who battled the flames for nearly three hours. One resident died.
And up in the East Village, the St. Mark’s Pinkberry also died on the vine … in similar fashion.
