Six Corners Marketplace opened at the corner of 106th Street and Broadway a few weeks ago. “The space had long been dark, so it’s great to have this bright and welcoming storefront suddenly appear!” wrote tipster Barbara. “It’s incredibly well stocked, with a big deli and a juice bar. And, most importantly, a working cat! I first spotted the cat when I was walking by a few weeks ago, but back then he was shy and mostly skulking behind the counter. Now he struts around like he OWNS the place! His name is Shadow.”
Le Petit Rooster has closed its doors for good less than a year after opening. The wine bar, bistro and rotisserie spot opened in place of Gastronomie 491 at 491 Columbus Avenue (83rd Street) last April. The manager said there was “not enough business to survive.” Thanks to Ibby for the tip.
Long’s Bedding at 121 West 72nd Street is closing for good at the end of the month and moving to the East Side. We profiled the owners last year, and heard their great stories about customers including Henry Kissinger, Marla Maples and James Taylor. Long’s has been around 87 years. Thanks to Gretchen for the tip.
Tasti D’lite on Amsterdam and 85th Street closed its doors late last year. Another Tasti also closed 10 blocks north a couple years ago. Thanks to Lisa for the tip.
