His & Hers Social and Athletic Club Gutted

One of the most oddball storefronts in the neighborhood has to be the long-abandoned home of the "His & Hers Social and Athletic Club" on Fifth Avenue near Carroll Street, an old gathering place where neighborhood folks used to hang out, drink, have social events, and do some betting on the ponies and football (hence the "Athletic"). I've never seen the front door open before, but when I walked by the other day it was wide open, and workers inside the space were putting the finishing touches on a complete gut job, seen below.

When I first wrote about the old storefront back in 2009, actor and local resident John Ventimiglia had expressed an interest in turning the space, which had recently been purchased (along with the old shoe repair shop next door) by the Fifth Avenue Committee, into an art gallery. That obviously never came to fruition, and now both of those ancient storefronts, remnants of an earlier era, have been gutted.

The roof was also off of the place last week. If you look up through the upper windows, you can just see sky.
