Back in June, I first shared the news that The Palm Restaurant, after 90 years, would likely be closing. Last month, The Real Deal confirmed and Eater posted photos of the ruined interior, its priceless murals destroyed.
Now reader Dave J. sends in a photo of the recently raised "For Rent" banner:
It's very large and rather self-satisfied. It proudly crows: "1st Time Available in 90 Years."
That's not actually a good thing. That's a bad thing. That's a thing that means a 90-year-old treasure has been shuttered...so a cupcake shop or fro-yo chain can move in.
Also, the windows have been papered over. So no more bloggers taking pictures of the destruction inside.
