Alex over at Flaming Pablum steers us to this trippy five-minute film by Rick Liss. Entitled N.Y.C. (No York City), the short clip is a visually stuttering, yet no less stunning account of early 1980s Gotham. A “creatively fertile” time in city history.
What do you think of the video?
It’s all guts all glory starting tonight at the Abrons Art Center at the Henry Street Settlement. Co-curated by George Terry and Jonathan Durham, GUTS explores risky business through a variety of mediums. An exercise in pushing the envelope to produce compelling new pieces, of which have not previously been displayed in New York. The introductory blurb […]
Above is a gratuitous photo of Method Man during a Wednesday night filming sesh for The Cobbler. It was taken by Boogie reader Milo Cordell outside of the Anwar bodega at 106 Avenue B. The hip-hop luminary and onetime Wu Tang Clansman stars alongside Adam Sandler and Steve Buscemi. The Cobbler is an indie-drama which stars […]
Two months after its premiere at the CBGB Festival, the widely-panned CBGB biopic is almost available to the masses. The film will be available on Blu-Ray and standard DVD on 12/31/13, not in time for Santa to deliver on your tenement stoop. According to Box Office Mojo, CBGB grossed a meager $40,400 in receipts during […]
Last night, the Parks subcommittee of Community Board 3 voted unanimously to approve the conceptual proposal for both the Pier 42 “Master Plan” and “Phase 1.” The meeting itself was the culmination of two years’ worth of politics, community outreach, and planning. Signe Nielsen was on hand to provide the necessary updates, as her firm […]
It’s aliiiiiiive! After a seasons-long holding pattern, 135 Bowery is officially returning to the ranks of the living, albeit as a modern development. New scaffolding is in place. Also, contractors are currently assembling the Erector Set steel beams for the four-story tumor that will sprout from the destroyed remains of the former Federal-style row house. […]
Brokers for the recently-refurbished 70 Kenmare Street managed to snag a big player in the ramen game. According to the Community Board 2 calendar for December, Kenshiro Uki of Teterboro manufacturer Sun Noodle is looking to open an outpost of the Ramen Lab at this address. His application specifies the need for a wine and […]
A Boogie tipster spotted Beastie Boy Mike D shopping in the SoHo REI last week. Apparently he had been looking for a winter hat of some sort, and no one in the store seemed to recognize him. The above photo captured the hip-hop luminary in mid-purchase at the cash register. What Beastie Boys lyric best […]
This winter, the little ladies of the Lower East Side have an opportunity to step up to the plate, thanks to a new neighborhood winter softball clinic. Game on! The clinic includes instruction on pitching, hitting, fielding – everything you’d pretty much expect to work on during the off-season – and it’s open to girls […]
What was left of the Lower East Side bargain district continues to shrivel. Today, we learn that furrier Arivel Fashions at 150 Orchard Street is on the outs. Misrahi Realty is presently seeking a replacement tenant to assume control sometime in May 2014. A listing for the 2,000 square-foot sub-level space (plus 350 square-foot basement) surfaced […]
The federal government is just a few votes away from recognizing the recent expansion of the Tenement Museum. You’ll recall, of course, that the local history hub purchased 103 Orchard Street a couple years ago, and opened a state-of-the-art learning facility and gift shop there in 2011. Last spring, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) introduced an […]
