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.
Once again, the feature film Time Out of Mind will be filming in the neighborhood today. Richard Gere will likely be around to reprise his role as a homeless dude. Shooting will predominantly transpire in the immediate vicinity of the Essex Market. Time Out of Mind stars Richard Gere as a homeless New Yorker who tries to reconnect with […]
Back in January, it was the New York Post that reported notorious 90s club kid Michael Alig – convicted in the murder and dismemberment of drug dealer Angel Melendez – would be paroled very soon. Turns out that might happen as soon as early next month. Alig’s friend, and nightlife maven in his own right, Steve […]
So it looks like preservationists do have a moment in the sun to fawn over 50 Bowery and its possible ties to the famed Bull’s Head Tavern of yore. But the exercise will most likely be short-lived. After all, the Bowery needs its hotel, and fast. Consultants from the Brooklyn-based Chrysalis Archaeology firm have been down at the project […]
Since it’s arguably the best neon sign around these parts, many in the neighborhood had been patiently awaiting the arrival of another Russ & Daughters sign to light up the Lower East Side. That moment arrived a couple days ago at 127 Orchard Street where the new sixty-five-seat cafe is slated to debut in the […]
The dearly departed Motor City Bar shuffled off this mortal coil on the final day of June last summer. It was an epic sendoff party that lasted a week, and included plenty of cheap beer and live music. A good portion of the space was stripped immediately after the demise, but silence quickly took hold […]
Mark Birnbaum had much to celebrate when a Finale customer ordered 200 bottles of champagne last weekend. Yet it wasn’t only that the single tab netted at least $60,000; he might actually get away scot free with a slap on the wrist. EMM Group will now pay the piper a fraction of that amount in […]
Now in its final lap, the BD Hotels crew is starting to drip even more details about its latest Ludlow Hotel project. The Ludlow. Most of what we knew about this place until now focused on the incoming restaurant – the latest from the Torrisi team called Dirty French, which opens this summer and will […]
Sometimes when you start a detective agency, a band is born. That’s about all you can dig up on the Seattle garage-pop foursome, Detective Agency. If that isn’t a testament to their sleuthing skillz, we don’t know what is. What we do know is they are cracking the musical code with super upbeat, gritty oldie-sounding […]
If you walk eastward on Monroe Street near the Manhattan Bridge, you’ll see it. A 22′ x 16′ banner billboard with an eye-grabbing photo of the Notorious B.I.G. with Twin Towers in the background. The image – shot by Chi Modu – was installed back in November as part of the ongoing “Uncategorized” street campaign […]
We’ve said it before. Retail changes in the Essex Street Market are akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Despite the wishes of some in the community, the Essex Crossing project decided to construct a new (much larger) facility across the street, which will happen sometime in the next couple years. Anyway. A […]
