There is another twist in the saga of 206 Bowery. Despite the owners’ wishes to “make a case for destruction at a later date,” as revealed at the LPC public hearing Tuesday morning, the unconfirmed word on the street is that a new ground-level commercial tenant is in the works.

Ralph Lewis, one of the last remaining tenants inside 206 Bowery was kind enough to send along a report on the Landmarks Preservation Commission public hearing from earlier this morning. The overall vibe with regard to these two Federal-style row houses was reportedly positive. Good news!
