East 17th Street: Imminently Perilous

No falafel for you!

Typically, there is a long line outside Rainbow Falafel on any given weekday during lunchtime. But today, there were only workers in front of the building (which disappointed a couple hungry Observer reporters).

Not only was Rainbow Falafel closed, but also Chopt, Havana Central, and Mandler’s sausage place.

Outside of the vacated buildings was an ominous message.

The Department of Buildings has determined that conditions are imminently perilous to life.

We’ll keep you posted on new developments.
