Another old timer bites the dust, the "Andrews Coffee Shop" on lower Fifth Ave..

near 19th closed quietly. There was a sign in the window that the space has already been rented, don't think it will be a restaurant. The "Andrews" was there when the neighborhood started to gentrify in the 1970s, and I went there often with a friend who had purchased a loft in the building on the corner. I think he paid $25,000 for the huge space then, oy! Well anyway "Andrews" made delicious sticky buns and was always our fall-back place when we were too tired to go elsewhere. R.I.P.p.s. I noticed the space that formerly housed the "Jon Vie Bakery" will now be a "Blue Jeans" shop. We need a bluejeans shop in the Village? NOOOOOOOOO, we don't! We need a bakery there dammit! :)
