Just a quickie.
I spotted the below photo this afternoon on the Facebook group, Greenwich Village Grapevine. Posted by one Ellen W., albeit without a date or photo credit, the photo below displays the northwest corner of East 11th Street at University Place. Sure, yes, that the old office of the Village Voice (later to decamp to 13th and Broadway, and then later still down to Cooper Square), but I was more struck by this early depiction of the second incarnation of my beloved Cedar Tavern, seemingly from an era prior to the advent of their second story.
In later years, the above site of the Voice's office would become a series of restaurants, notably a Thai place called Lemongrass, and then a more conventional bistro called Jack's, before eventually closing and being transformed into a TD Bank.
The Cedar Tavern, of course, closed suddenly in 2006 with an announcement that its building's air rights had been sold and that a new development was being erected above it. The community was assured that it wasn't going away for good, but that turned out to be a fat, fucking lie. The place was closed, gutted and razed, only to have an artless condo erected in its footprint. Its street-facing ground floor sat empty for years until it became occupied by European Waxing Salon. This link contains links to the whole sorry saga.
