It’s official. The Lower East Side will no longer be subjected to open-ended filming schedules for Forever. The ABC drama, suspiciously similar to Pete Hamill’s book of same, was canceled by the network earlier this spring. Despite number of some 7 million viewers for the last episode.

The cancellation also means the faux Abe’s Antiques at 154 Stanton Street is a thing of the past. It frees up the former Smart Clothes gallery space to import pop-up endeavors such as the Yoga Teddy Bear we saw a couple months ago. Now, Gallery La La, based on Sullivan Street, will host the so-called “Indoor Summer Flea Market.”

As the name suggests, the month-long event is an indoor market that’ll feature clothing, jewelry, music, antiques, toys, and more. The flea started yesterday and runs through August 26; hours are 11am to 7pm.

Gallery La La was founded in 2007, and curates art exhibitions, music shows, and artisans markets.
