The red neon Guinness sign in the window of Scruffy Murphy's has been illuminated the past two nights. Does this mean Scruffy's may reopen? It's a mystery.
There is a " Subway's " ( sandwich shop ) awning at the store on the southeast corner of 68th Street and Fourth Avenue. That would be a decent addition to the block. And I do like hero sandwiches.
I went to orginal pizza over there last afternoon, and that area could use something. seems like every time I go over there seems like more and more a seeddy area, I also noticed the high amount of cop presence, I guess something happened. I saw that yesterday, but I saw just a guiness sign. If Alpine closes that would hurt this area even more, especially that section.
Sullivan's-Lenin's-Limbrick's-Baja Sports Lounge-Vortex-Chillers-Subway. Store sure has changed a lot last few years, huh? Repair shop across th' street's goin' fer a make-over too it seems.
I welcome Subway. Better than another bar.
I remember back in the 70s there was a ton of bars in that block - Lion Rampant, Curran's, Joe Major's, Rob Roy, and whatever the bar on 68th and Fourth was called.
Now there are no bars. I'd welcome Scruffy's back...Sean ran a good place...but it is good to have fewer bars.
I wish a destination store like Blockbuster or something like that would come to this block.
There should be plenty of opportunity for a landlords / business operators in this area.
In the meantime, I will go well out of my way to support the many good businesses around here.
