‘Little Canal’ Cafe Vying to Open at 26 Canal Street

Last modified December 29, 2015 at 2:08 pm

Last week, a Boogie reader sent along intel that a couple of “Williamsburg types” were sniffing around 26 Canal Street (corner of Rutgers). Presumably for some sort of new nightlife endeavor.

Tchotchkes are out, chairs in at 26 Canal Street. Back in October, ABA Super Gift closed its ground level operation at the corner of Rutgers, citing the all too familiar lost lease as primary culprit.  Now, six months later, there are some newcomers. And they aren’t selling snow globes.

The modest corner variety store at 26 Canal Street – ABA Super Gift – recently lost its lease and will be vacating the premises sometime next month.  Beneath a yellow sign announcing its doom, shoppers rifle through bins of various tchotchkes – irregular packs of underwear and socks, decades-old boxes of unopened baseball cards (gum […]
