Less than a month after one of the neighborhood’s eight Subways closed, another one has gone belly up.

The Subway at 141 Second Avenue, near East Ninth Street, closed last week and started getting a lightning-fast makeover today. According to a manager, Taz Uddin, the store’s owner decided it “wasn’t working” because “they’re opening too many” Subways.

The store will reopen under the same ownership in about a month. The new joint, Good Guys, will serve and deliver “famous” burgers (per the sign), fries, pastas, salads, espresso drinks. It’ll be open 24/7, said Mr. Uddin, because “there are a lot of bars around here.”

Mr. Uddin said he also hoped to serve beer at outdoor tables in the summer.
