Dive Bar “Subway Inn” May Have To Closed It’s Doors!

Dive Bar Subway Inn May Have To Closed It's Doors!The neon-lit bar, which has offered cheap beer and down-to-earth service across the street from Bloomingdale’s at 143 E. 60th St. for nearly 80 years, is facing eviction and is trying to raise $10,000 to pay lawyers and spread the word about their situation. The Salinas family launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign and a petition this week, after they say their landlord refused to renew their lease and told them they had to move out by Aug. 20. The World-Wide Group, which owns the building, plans to build “luxury condos” in place of the bar. The owners have put several large “Save Subway Inn” banners inside the bar as well as on the storefront, and they are also addressing their online petition to Mayor Bill de Blasio and other local officials, in the hopes of saving the bar.
