Today comes sad confirmation of a rumor that has been circulating since February: the Upper East Side classic Subway Inn will shutter next month. In a message on its Facebook page, the iconic dive announces: "We are sad to inform you that Subway Inn will be closed for business on or about the 15th of August." Presumably the new owner of the building, the World-Wide Group, has other plans for the space — perhaps another residential tower like the one it plans on 57th Street. But take heart: the 77-year-old bar goes on to emphasize "That's not to say we aren't opening another location. Subway Inn WILL be relocate [sic]." Stay tuned.
