Original NY System (Providence, RI) closed??

Having recently hit Olneyville NY System, I was going to take another drive to Providence today to check out what seemed to be the other big hot dog joint, Original NY System.  Imagine my shock when I saw this on Yelp.
 

 
Their Facebook page seemed to confirm that something was very wrong.
 

 
Try as I might, though, I can't find a single news article about it anywhere...

    I just tried the phone number listed on Original NY System's website.  (401) 331-5349 and after a number of rings this was the outgoing message that I heard:
     
    "...NY System.  We'll be closed for remodeling.  We'll be closed for a period of time.  Thank you for calling."  (beep)
     
    The man who recorded the message had an accent that seemed thick to me so I couldn't understand everything he said but above is the bulk of it.

    Glad they're not closed for good... Although remodeling does sound a little sinister for such an old place.

    They have reopened as Baba's Original NY System, with new management, new decor, and a new menu.

    Update, July 2016: ONYS is back! It re-opened July 10 under new management once again. Hot wieners are still the stars here, but the menu has been revamped to include wraps, gyros (a nice addition, in keeping with ONYS's Greek roots), angus-steak burgers, chicken quesadillas, veggie burgers, and salads. Breakfast has been eliminated. There's not a lot of evidence of remodeling, and that's a good thing. The only obvious difference is a new menu board and a more uniform decorating scheme of framed articles and memorabillia, much of which is a holdover from the Pappas era. But the booths, the worn tile floors, and the ATM in the corner are all the same.

     
    Guess I'll have to go see for myself!

    Good to see it's still open. But just in case I added this to my Christmas list:

    http://dogsauce.blogspot....-hot-wiener-sauce.html
     
    I want to get a packet in case they're not available again.
     
    Read the address on the packet.. shows an old address. I'm gonna call one day and see if they're still available.
     
    PS - I would love to try their sauce on a Gyro.

    Also, it's Olneyville, not Original - two different establishments.

    Hadn't even noticed. :) Turns out I've been buying Burmann's Mayonnaise all these years and not Hellmann's? LOL
