VANISHED: July 2007
Made a visit to Dick's the other day on my personal tour of the MTA's list of doomed buildings, slated to be snatched by eminent domain for the new Second Avenue subway line.
Dick's shutter is down and it's down for good, according to a tip from Eater, and the phone's been disconnected.

I guess that's it for Dick's, a good old gay dive bar, described by New York Magazine thusly: "With its concept-free amalgam of bar, pool table, jukebox and pinball machine, Dick's is to most East Village gay bars what Edith Piaf is to Cher."
