People are curious about what's happening at Smith's Bar off Times Square. In October, I reported that it was closing after 60 years in business. It closed. The owners weren't talking to the media.
Then, surprisingly, the antique neon sign was restored.
Now Davy Mack writes in with a photo of a new awning.

I took a peek inside at the renovation going on behind the paper-covered windows and caught a glimpse of some striped banquettes. From that quick peek, it's hard to get a sense of what kind of place is coming, but clearly they're keeping the name Smith's.
