REVIVE: 9A SHUTTERS IN MANHATTANVILLE
Recently Hudson River Cafe also closed down but Dinosaur Bar-B-Que or Fairway does quite well. Since pedestrian foot traffic is scarce over by 12th Avenue whatever comes along next must have a bigger reputation to really do well in the area with the few shopfront options that are left and new startups might not be such a great idea until the campus is fully formed. We are just not sure the whole nightclub or lounge model really works here since that business model has limited hours and does not appeal to the wide demographic which is needed to keep the area active.
