Subway One Week from Opening at 229 Chrystie

Posted on: November 2nd, 2010 at 7:46 am by

Subway is on the verge of opening its zillionth New York City location inside the Avalon Chrystie complex.  The lights were on last night at 229 Chrystie Street, with employees working on all the last-minute preparations.

This particular outpost has been in the works for roughly five months already. Although the company never officially announced the new Subway, it didn’t take long for the illuminated signage to arrive. But then the space sat dormant until this past weekend.  One man removing remnants of the Avalon window advertisements informed us that the opening is probably one week away.

What’s worse, though, is the curbside garbage situation here.  Bags pile up daily with enough trash to keep both can collectors and neighborhood vermin happy.  And with the advent of fast food here, we can probably expect the heaps to multiply. Stinky Subway.
