East Village latte-sipping millennials chase out Hells Angels

“We’re being harassed by the yuppies down here [who are] sitting on our bikes and pissing on the sidewalk,” griped one biker outside the motorcycle gang’s clubhouse at 77 E. Third St. Tony, who once lived in the HQ and is now homeless, turned up at the all-but-abandoned building. “Time for a change,” Tony said. The club hopes to relocate to a neighborhood where they won’t be bothered by Starbucks traffic or pushy tourists. The Hells Angels are now hunting for new digs in Manhattan.
The six-story 119-year-old East Village building recently had been sold and was now being listed on several real estate Web sites. It’s being listed as a rental property with 14 units, 11 of them residential featuring “hardwood floors” and “high ceilings.”

The few Angels remaining appear ready to depart soon following a transfer of the property. A one-bedroom listed by for $2,750 a month starting April 1 for a 12-month lease.
It's thought the old Hells Angels hangout would be a $10 million property these days if the new owner renovated and added a doorman.

In 1969 the club bought the building for a reported $1,900.
