This morning DNAinfo reported that the space at 25 East 1st Street that once housed the beloved dive Mars Bar is becoming a "wellness center" featuring yoga and cold pressed juice. It seems that some of you are not thrilled about this development.
Some reactions are earnestly sad.

Other tweets contain the kind of snark that gets New Yorkers through yet another day of losing neighborhood institutions to yoga studios, froyo places and Starbucks franchises.
