The Hells Angels are riding their hogs out of the Lower East Side.
The infamous motorcycle gang is selling its clubhouse at 77 East Third Street to a New York LLC known as East 3rd Street, according to EV Grieve. The firm has ties to commercial real estate investor Nathan Blatter of Whitestone Realty Group, and the sales price has not been reported.
The clubhouse is known as the “Church of the Angels,” and federal agents tried to take it over in 1985 following a drug bust, accusing the biker gang of using it to conduct drug deals. However, a jury ultimately ruled against the maneuver.
The gang reportedly bought the clubhouse in 1977 for $10, EV Grieve reported. [NYP] – Eddie Small
