One of the set locations for yesterday’s Girls film shoot was outside 248 Broome Street. We ambled past in the early evening and caught the crew and a bunch of extras capturing establishing shots of the quaint storefronts. From the look of it, Babycakes, Sebastian LC, and Fringe Salon will all have a cameo in the upcoming HBO production.
After “action” was called, extras playing suits, skateboarders, and couples walked between Ludlow and Orchard. That was the whole scene. At least the part that we caught. Exciting shit.
Demolition for the Essex Crossing mega-project is slated to begin on Monday, forever changing the face of the Lower East Side and its heretofore low-level skyline. As previously reported, Site 2 at the corner of Essex and Delancey is the first parcel to receive knockdown treatment. The parking lot has already been cleared of vehicles, […]
Let’s take a stroll down Ludlow Street circa 1995… The following snippet of footage is a glimpse of Ludlow Street “on the corner of East Houston and Katz’s Delicatessen” as filmed by Corey Shaff (narrated by Ronnie DeMonarco). “Planet Ludlow,” as it’s called, is essentially a four-minute tour of the block and its stock of […]
The former Living Room space is amidst conversion to a dry use. After the failed bid by exiled drag bar Lucky Cheng’s to take 154 Ludlow Street, the Hell Square address is now forsaking nightlife altogether. Construction has already begun on the artsy replacement; a plywood shed and curbside dumpster are now part of the […]
While residents grapple with the terrors of living under the thumb of Samy Mahfar, a new restaurant is opening in the commercial space of 102 Norfolk Street. As previously reported, a 14-seat Mexican joint called La Contenta Cocina de Barrio has taken the reins from Saro Bistro, which closed in April 2014 after a solid […]
Progress is slow at Peter Poon’s monstrous new Lower East Side hotel development. Indeed, 50 Bowery remains a block-long crater, making slow strides to its eventual calling as a 22-story tower. Excavation and foundation work is clearly the order of business these days. Yet until now, a proper identity was never ascertained; only a working […]
Now is your chance to drain some of that red stuff coursing through those veins for a good cause. The 7th Precinct is hosting a blood drive today from noon to 6pm. Appointment are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome, too. Full details are outlined in the flyer above.
Despite a Birchbox holiday pop-up to the contrary, Tokyobike is indeed staying put at 1 Prince Street. Permanently, we are told. Yes, the trendy bike manufacturer will officially mark its homecoming to the Bowery sometime in March 2015, according to an email from co-owner Dean DiSimone. It previously spent some five months at the address late […]
Just when the neighborhood began to develop a true rapport, the proverbial rug is pulled out. Currently in his second term, Governor Cuomo has been busy bolstering his ranks. Last week saw a third round of appointments to various state jobs and committee posts. According to a report in the New York Times, it appears […]
One midtown developer is willing to pay $33 million for the beleaguered Allen Street Hotel. Unless they’re outbid. Yes, the convoluted history of the Allen Street Hotel is taking another turn toward the unexpected. At a height of sixteen stories, this zombie property, the last of five Hell Square hotels to reach completion, has been […]
There’s some bloodletting to report on the faddy fro-yo front today. Two downtown locations of Pinkberry are apparently donezo. First. The embattled outpost at 41 Spring Street – which reopened six months ago after a fire-forced hiatus – just papered its windows and is no longer in service. Its business phone line is also terminated, […]
