MakeUpMania Abruptly Shutters at 182 Allen

It’s a crisis of cosmetics at the trailhead of Allen Street. Last week, nine-year veteran MakeUpMania kicked the compact, as it were, and vacated 182 Allen rather abruptly. Taped to the windows are cheeky farewell letters to the neighborhood. The online business has another boutique location in the Denver area.
The slender, one-story space at the base of the posh Thompson LES, once code-named the “Makeup Trailer,” is now up for grabs.
The man killed in last night’s hit-and-run on the Bowery was a beloved member of the community. This much was clear from the various tipsters who alerted us to the accident. Robert Perry – age 57 – had been visiting the Bowery Mission for assistance the last few years. His life was cut short when […]
Looks like even the graffiti artists have something to say about the state of affairs at 190 Bowery, a downtown landmark both in the preservation and street art circles. The hulking 18,000 square-foot property – known as the Germania Bank Building – was apparently sold back in September by photographer Jay Maisel. Yet there isn’t any […]
East Village Wine & Liquor – a misnomer of a business headquartered at Stanton Street – is one of the more reliable shops out there. It’s also one of the only places that sells a certain brand of Aguardiente that we consume quite frequently. However, after about ten years in this corner spot, the booze depot […]
287-291 East Houston (at Clinton) is ready for its multimillion-dollar upgrade. The three-parcel property was inititally on the chopping block last February for $15 million, but had languished without sale. Then within the last couple months, the “prime development opportunity” disappeared from online real estate listings. Now, a Boogie reader reveals that 287-291 East Houston just […]
For Petee’s Pie Company, it was an eleventh-hour rush to the finish line. The new pastry purveyors opened yesterday afternoon at 61 Delancey after a hasty two-month build-out. Just in time for Thanksgiving, as initially promised. The Petee’s awning is certainly a nice touch for the neighborhood. When completely unfurled, it’s a throwback to that […]
Last night at around 7:30pm, a homeless man residing at the Bowery Mission was killed in a hit-and-run just north of Rivington Street. Northbound traffic was completely sealed, with police cruisers redirecting motorists back down the Bowery. What we know is that the 24-year-old BMW driver was an Asian male named Danny Lin who fled the scene, […]
New Yorkers across the Boroughs are finally rising up against SantaCon. As previously reported, when the bar crawl chose Bushwick as HQ last week, the Brooklyn enclave refused to allow the partying. The vociferous backlash here on the Lower East Side, however, is largely attributed to the spark ignited by the LES Dwellers block association, […]
If you happened upon the southern intersection of Orchard and Delancey Streets yesterday, you may have noticed a pair of ponies hanging out near the Tenement Museum visitors center. These mini horses were not props for a film shoot of The Knick (or other period piece) nor were they the newest NYPD equestrian patrol unit […]
It would be dope if this was permanent, but alas, this is the new Lower East Side and a comic book store won’t do. What you see here was a temporary sale inside the now-former Lobster Joint. The flea market of sorts lasted all weekend, with various issues culled from all decades priced at $1 and […]
As we’ve been closely chronicling for the better part of the last year, WD-50 and the adjacent Clinton Street properties will soon fall for luxury condo development. One by one, each of the businesses along this low-rise stretch of real estate shuttered/moved, with Wylie Dufresne’s baby being the last. The restaurant will close at the […]
