From Grub Street, maybe billyboy should be on a suicide watch.

      107-Year-Old Carmine’s Sails Into Sunset AmNew York brings word that crusty South Street Seaport seafood and red-sauce joint Carmine’s (not to be confused with the chain of the same name) is a goner owing to a rumored rent increase. The 107-year-old establishment wasn’t a culinary destination by any means, but was thick with divey nautical charm.

        Somehow I missed this post and news. Sad, just sad. These "Old New York" places are fewer and fewer.  I was last in there about 3 months ago.  (I worked in the area until I recently retired. I guess they couldn't survive withhout my business.. )

        Here's another article about the closing:

            One of the comments left on this blog mentions that Carmine's will re-locate and open this Autumn.

              Then again, maybe not.

                  Makes me sad as I walked by there the other day and the space is still available for lease.  The landlord could have still been collecting rent if they had let Carmine's stay.  Now they've got nuttin'!
