No Fun Facade Pulled Down in ATM Heist on Ludlow Street

Posted on: September 2nd, 2020 at 5:00 am by

The windowed facade of No Fun collapsed early yesterday morning as a result of a cash box heist.

Police sources say that one or more robbers ripped the store ATM from the premises at 4:15am Tuesday morning. The force from its removal – purportedly pried with a white van – was apparently enough to bring the whole wall down.

It wasn’t clear how much money was in the machine at the time, though.

This is the second such ATM heist on the block in as many months. El Sombrero across the street fell victim to a similar attack back in July. Van and all. It’s unknown whether the same crew is behind this incident.

As for No Fun, the controversial nightclub hasn’t been open lately. There is speculation that the nine-year-old spot is down for good.
