"That one corner" in Manhattan was the SW corner of Bleecker and Leroy in the West Village. Only restaurant that lasted longer than six months was "Grandpa's Place," a red-sauce Italian-American joint owned by Ed Lewis of The Munsters fame, and THAT closed after about two years.

I think they burned the building to the ground, salted the earth, and built condos on the lot. Even now, they say no houseplant thrives there...
