Bad news for Central Park hobos, Whole Foods wine shop shut down

The spirit of Elliott Ness is alive apparently, as the wine shop at the Colombus Circle Whole Foods closed after pleadading no contest to charges that it was operating illegally.

Not that I ever shopped there. Or that I'd go that far uptown in general. Or that I have trouble shopping for wine downtown. I'm just saying, ya know.

And if you're wondering about the availability of wine at the Avalon Chrystie location that will open next year...
the company expected to transfer and use the surrendered license again for a wine shop occupying 4,000 to 5,000 square feet of space in the blocklong supermarket it planned to open on East Houston Street next year. State law also prohibits holders of retail liquor licenses from owning more than one store. The East Houston Street wine shop will be separate from the supermarket there, with an entrance on Chrystie Street.
