Any hopes of the 2nd Avenue Deli re-opening are now officially dashed:
Second Avenue Deli to Serve ‘Cash’
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — The Second Avenue Deli’s next take-out will be cash. The building that once housed the famed East Village deli is becoming a Chase bank branch.
According to the New York Post, Chase signed a lease for the property as well as a newsstand next door. The Post quotes a real estate broker as being involved in the deal, which was finalized Wednesday.
The deli closed its doors in January following a rent dispute.
