Recent Changes Along Fifth

Well, the empty spaces on Fifth Avenue are starting to fill up (or are at least undergoing renovations that make them look like they will soon be full). Here are some changes we saw yesterday, on our walk along the avenue:

  • Action at former bar section of Long Tan- soon to be a new bar!

  • The no-name coffee shop at 186 Fifth Avenue finally has a name: Konditori. Yelp says their coffee is Badass.

  • Action at the former Total Wine Bar site

  • Sky Ice- soft opening at 63 Fifth Avenu. Dessert and snacks, Thai Ice Cream and more. Details on this unique new cafe from Here's Park Slope.

  • Patio Lounge is closed and empty

  • Culture (an American Yogurt Company) is now open at 331 Fifth Avenue (although their website doesn't seem to think so.

  • There appears to be action at the old Jeans Express site (476 Fifth Avenue). Anyone know what's going on?

  • Blockbuster Video (550 Fifth Avenue) is closed.

  • Alta Voce (318 Fifth Avenue) is for rent. Interested?

  • Housing Works is coming soon to the old Garfield Kitchen space (Fifth at Garfield Place)

  1. The old Jeans Express site is going to be a bicycle shop. One of the workmen told me yesterday.
