UPPER WEST SIDE—A Gristedes, closing? Heaven forbid! A tipster writes, "It looks like the Gristedes in the Century is the latest rent victim to the neighborhood escalation caused by 15 CPW. Their new rent must have been too high - there are signs advertising retail space in their windows (although the Gristedes is still open). What's going to end up in there? Hopefully not another bank." [RackedWire Inbox]
