In another example of 5th Avenue businesses shifting spots, The Chocolate Room has announced that it will move from its current location at 86 5th Avenue to take over the space presently occupied by Mega Glass, at 51 5th Avenue.
According to Park Slope Patch, owners Naomi Josepher and Jon Payson knew they wouldn’t be able to renew their current lease after the rent “skyrocketed out of the range of affordability.” Luckily for us, the expert confectioners found a more affordable option just a block away:
“We are incredibly excited to be in the same neighborhood that has so generously supported us,” Josepher said. “We’ve seen families grow, been through ups and downs with individuals, and enjoyed becoming family with the community. We are ecstatic to have this opportunity.”
The Chocolate Room will move into their new space– which comes with a back patio!– after their lease ends on January 31.
