The Crazy Landlord Building Will Be Home to the Bean, Not a Sex Shop. Sigh.
So much for an East Village dildo store. Contrary to what the Crazy Landlord told us, his building on the corner of 3rd Street and Second Avenue will soon be home to the third location of the Bean.
After a reader saw the Bean's name listed on the building's buzzer, EV Grieve discovered that the coffee shop, which has a location a mere one block away on First Avenue and is opening another on Broadway, filed permits with the DOB. The plans were subsequently confirmed by the Crazy Landlord himself, who we fully believe is indeed crazy. Like a fox.
