Should it stay? Or should it go?
Rumor has it that tomorrow is the day that the fate of the Subway/Purple Pub/Perfect Blend building will be decided. Evidently the structure can be rehabbed, but at a considerable cost. Tomorrow the owner will visit the property for the first time since the fire and decide whether it makes more sense to call a carpenter or a bulldozer.
For the sake of all involved, I hope and pray that those individuals who were directly impacted by the fire be given first dibs on space in any new construction, should that be the decision that David Paresky makes.
Long Live The Purple Pub!
