Its fate was pretty much sealed back in November when the 35 - 39 lot of Cooper Square sold for $8.9 million in an all cash deal. But some held out hope for NYU-area bar Asian Pub as the community gathered around its building to protest the pretty much guarunteed demolition of one of the holdouts of the Old Bowery.
Today, Bowery Boogie reports that Saturday was the Pub's last night of service and the place is currently being gutted. Community organizers will continue to fight to save the Federal-style standalone building, as they did during a rally on Friday.
