In the coming weeks, we will be highlighting small mom-and-pop stores that NYC has sadly lost in the past decade.

We hope that this new decade that 2020 has brought in will be a better one for small unique businesses than the past decade as so many shops, restaurants and bars have shuttered.

The original location of Subway Inn on East 60th Street opposite Bloomingdales which opened in 1937, sadly closed in 2014 after the building owner declined to renew their lease as they wanted to build high-end luxury condos on the site.

Thankfully, Marcello Salinas who started out mopping floors at the bar when he immigrated to the U.S. before taking ownership of the #divebar was able to relocate the @subwayinn #bar in 2015 to 2nd Ave at East 60th Street and even brought over the bar’s iconic #neon #signage. We love when a tragic loss ends up as a happy story! 😊
