We kind of missed out on the Boma Coffee & Tea Co. at 2037 Fifth Avenue and 126th Street when it was open a few years back but what is more perplexing is that the commercial space still is vacant today. The location is on a pleasant block just north of the main commercial hub of 125th Street and the corner store is in good condition since Boma had fixed it up in recent years. This retail block appears to have had some ambitious starts during the height of the real estate market but now has been struggling to get an interested business into the vacant space.
