It seems like only yesterday, Le Pain Quotidien arrived on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope.

The upscale cafe chain settled into a prime location at 239 Fifth Ave. on the corner of Carroll Street.

But tempus fugit, baby. Le Pain Quotidien has vacated the handsome red-brick mixed-use residential and retail building, which was constructed in the 1880s.

A new tenant is headed to 239 Fifth Ave. — a restaurant called The Haenyeo, which is named after women sea divers on Jeju Island in South Korea.

Recently, we took an epic stroll along the entire length of Fifth Avenue. See related story. The Pain Quotidien location was one of several prime but vacant Park Slope sites that caught our eye.

* Warren Lewis Sotheby’s International Realty has a “For Lease” sign in the window of the ground-floor restaurant space at 279 Fifth Ave. on the corner of 1st Street.

A restaurant called Henri on Fifth had been located there. It closed a year ago.

The asking rent is $9,950 per month for the 1,100-square-foot restaurant space, which has a fully equipped kitchen and a full basement, a posting on the real estate brokerage’s website says.

* A chic clothing shop called Mavi has departed 205 Fifth Ave., a prominent site on the corner of Union Street.

When we walked past the other day, we could hear the whir of construction machinery inside the locked-up storefront.
