Commercial Space at 177 Chrystie Put Up for Rent

The trendy spillover effect from the Freeman’s environs on the Lower East Side is now rounding the corner onto Chrystie Street. While Mikco Building Material on the northwest corner seemingly has a stronger foothold, its neighbor across the street at 177 Chrystie isn’t so lucky.
