Our label conscious sister, Racked, now has photo confirmation of the closure of legendary Lower East Side bakery, Gertel's, closing as of this Friday. To review:
"Gertel's posted a sign yesterday saying that the store is closing for good as of June 22. And, significantly, the two-lots-wide one-story tile warehouse right next door has recently vacated the premises as well. That's a big footprint to build on. Neighborhood character gives way to eight-story condo development."As a special bonus consolation prize, Racked has also confirmed that Kossar's isn't going anywhere.
