A Bespoke reader sent in a photo of another retail space over at 215 West 125th Street that has closed recently and wonders if the rent in the area is getting too high for some of the popular fast food chains in the area. One of the handful of McDonald's on 125th Street apparently has shuttered for good at the modern building located east of FDB/8th Avenue and workers were seen deconstructing the space in recent weeks. This is also the building where Crumbs will reportedly debut so maybe the type of businesses in the area are just diversifying more. Read about Crumbs' arrival to Harlem in our past post: LINK
