Uncool Gas Station

At the corner of Avenue C and East Houston Street there is a plywood barrier that hides what used to be a gas station:

Former gas station.

This is the kind of thing you would expect to see on the outskirts — part of the reason why I don't walk across Houston Street. I did walk up and down Avenue C from time to time though, and across East 2nd Street, when I needed to, so I was no stranger to this station, and I can tell you I don't miss it!

The two fences border two streets: East Houston Street on the left and East 2nd Street on the right. I'm taking the picture through a hole cut into the plywood barrier, at the entrance on Avenue C. Cars entered and left this station from three different streets. What a mess!

As someone who only takes Citibikes or the subway, I never had need for a gas station anyway.

Goodbye uncool gas station!
