No sooner did I write last month of the closing of Polish Delicatessen Podlaise that the location appears to have been rented and construction has begun at the location. From the city permits we can tell that it is going to be a Cafe. As if 8th Avenue needed yet another cafe. Somehow I don't think it's going to be a Starbucks. Fat chance of that happening. But we can always hope. Actually I think a Starbucks would do well on 8th Avenue, maybe even on 5th where there are a lot of store fronts up for rent. At least it shows the vibrancy of the local economy on the 8th Avenue strip. Stores don't stay closed for long. If there is one constant in the neighborhood it is change and it's happening at a fast pace..
