Two neighboring storefronts at 86 5th Avenue, between St Marks Place and Warren Street, are waiting for tenants as they sit for rent.
One, pictured above on the right, is the former home to The Chocolate Room, which is currently operating a pop-up space next door as they get closer to opening in their future home up the street at 51 5th Avenue. The 900-square-foot space is listed for $7,000 per month. For more info, call Baring Reality at .

Close to Barclays and a number of subway lines, this stretch seems to have a lot of potential for booming business, though high rental prices may make that more difficult. As someone who lives, works, or visits this stretch regularly, what kind of businesses do you think are needed, and think can hopefully make it here?
