Not to mention the amazing dia beacon, which can hold its own to any major manhattan museum.

Wonderful place, as is Storm King Art Center in nearby New Windsor: http://www.stormking.org

 Yeah, I think with the cost of rent and the need for a business to do all that is possible to ensure success, it seems inevitable that change would be coming in. And since gap has had such luck with that gap factory store, I'm not surprised they would want to throw in an Old Navy across the way.

 Charm and small-town appeal doesn't seem likely.  Look at what happened to Forest Hills. It's chain store Central,  but there are still a few gems to be found.

 I just came back from going up the Hudson Valley over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by how the town of Beacon has turned the corner. Block upon block of cafés, mom-and-pop boutiques, artesian bakeries and restaurants, and art spaces. Not to mention the amazing dia beacon, which can hold its own to any major manhattan museum.

 for the price of our two bedroom you can get a house. But then again, it isn't New York City.

Further up Bachue Restaurant looks close to opening in the old Dragon Seed site. Although it's graphic of a woman wearing nothing but a small apron around her waist is a questionable graphic choice.
Oh well-
Bon Appétit!

The Bachué logo is a reference to a Colombian cultural symbol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachué

I've heard Old Navy is moving into the ABC space.  The charm of 82nd street is long gone  as witnessed by the the boobacious manniqins in the windows of the old Clark's store. All one can do is keep their fingers crossed.
On a positive note, the new restaurant on 37th between 83-84th appears to be closer to opening and a peek in the window reveals a promising go-to establishment!

I am looking into this, too, although our building currently has no laundry room at all at the moment. 

I heard good things about Sebco and iffy things about Coinmach.  I filled out a request for info form on the Sebco website today, and they literally called me back in 30 seconds!

Looks like another one bites the dust.  I liked this store.  Friendly staff, and when they ran sales you could get a good deal.

With ABC and FEver closing right acroos the way, it's hard to ignore that we seem to have a lot of empty retailin 82nd
