The former home of Astor Wines and Spirits for over half a century on the corner of Astor Place at Lafayette St which was replaced by a Walgreens in 2006 now sits vacant for over a year.

On 3rd Avenue between 9th St and 10th St a Duane Reade expanded pushing out long standing small businesses like East Village Cheese. It now sits vacant taking up almost the entire block front.
