Recent Changes Along Fifth

Lots of changes on 5th Avenue this month:

  • It appears that Puppets Jazz Bar closed over the past couple of days. There is a "for rent" sign hanging from the front window.

  • Dr. Alexander Esposito (332a 9th Street) appears to be gone.

  • Of course, there is a lot of buzz about the new Dumplings and Things (in the space next to Bar Reis)

  • A Body & Foot Rub place opened at 169a Fifth Avenue. It's a bit mysterious and the actual name is unclear but a foot rub does sound nice.

  • As noted by Here's Park Slope, Asha Veza has closed its Fifth Avenue storefront, although they may be opening another Brooklyn storefront at the end of the summer

  • Wolf & Deer (74 Fifth Avenue) appears ready to open. Wait, is it open? We really should get out more at night.

  • Clear Wireless Internet's Fifth Avenue shop closed recently, but will soon be replaced by a Boost/Virgin Mobile store (they were getting ready to replace the awning when we dropped by today.)

  • Calexico (88 Fifth Avenue) appears to have been shut and vacated by a court order of some sort.

  • Manhattan's Bicycle Habitat opened in the large space at 476 Fifth Avenue (formerly Toy's R Us's pop-up store).
