Guss’ Pickles is leaving the Lower East Side, but owner Pat Fairhurst is going home. High rent and a new city parking meter in front of her store is sending Fairhurst and her famous pickle shop — one of two left in the neighborhood, along with The Pickle Guys — to Brooklyn’s Boro Park, where she grew up. ‘I feel bad that they have to go,’ said local Rabbi Avraham Fishelis, but added, ‘They’ve survived, and hopefully they’ll survive until the coming of the Messiah.’
