The End of the Rainbow?


The Sunset Park-based blog Best View in Brooklyn reports that the Rainbow Cafe, one of the finest sights on Fifth Avenue in that nabe, has closed up for a couple months. According to local sources, the owner of the large restaurant and banquet hall has passed away. It will apparently remain closed for much of the summer. We at Lost City applaud the owner for his years of service to the community and hope he/she had a child or relative wishing to keep the torch burning at the old-school business, which has one of the finest signs in all of Gotham.

One would think that the estate administrator would try to keep the business open, as the longer it stays closed the more its value will diminish. My guess is that it's closed for good.
