Oh well — we were looking forward to the prospect of traditional Mexican cemitas on 5th Avenue, ever since an awning went up above the storefront at 435 5th Ave back in November. But we waited and passed by and never happened to see the security gate up, and now there’s a big “available” sign hanging from the awning, so it looks like we won’t be getting to try any tasty sandwiches.
If there are any people out there thinking of starting up a cemiteria (or any other kind of business), this stretch of 5th Ave between 8th and 9th Streets is bustling. Contact Kim of Coldwell Banker at 718-646-3600 for more info.
As for everybody else, what do you think could work in this space?
