Last month, I wrote that Gus from The Windmill Lunch died over the summer and looked back at the restaurant's history.
I went for lunch there earlier this week and asked the ladies if Gus was able to sell the restaurant before he died, (it had been for sale for months, if not longer.) He hadn't.
They are desperately looking for a buyer and asked me to help spread the word.
So, if you're interested in saving one of the last authentic lunch counters in the city, the building is for sale! it includes the 96 seat restaurant and three residential flats above.
The asking price, at least before Gus' death, was $300,000. I didn't ask if that had changed.
Check it out at 518 Selkirk Avenue.
