Timeshare Backyard Waste of Water?

The Timeshare Backyard is a brilliant lesson in irking neighbors and contributing to the already overbearing noise problem on Ludlow Street. It’s also a great way to “waste water” as one Boogie reader puts it. Puppy’s Blog captions this photo submission by saying, “time share backyard in LES: wasting water since 2011.”
The hydrant hookup was presumably to fuel the Slip ‘n’ Slide, or just to water the fresh green lawn. Either way, how do you feel about this grand experiment in Ludlow Street suburbia?
For the second time within a month, that new Netflix-funded Marvel Comics series will be filming on the Bowery. (They will also be in Alphabet City today) It’s called AKA Jessica Jones, but operating under the guise of a production entitled “Violet.” That’s the name listed on the “no parking” signs that arrived before the holiday weekend. […]
After publishing the second installment of Erin Harvey’s op-ed examining the relationship between Sheldon Silver and Community Board 3, we thought it prudent to field a response from Gigi Li’s opponent in the 2014 chairperson election, board member Chad Marlow. Below are some choice excerpts from our interview. Bowery Boogie: Harvey’s piece opines that former […]
“We are devious,” a sign in the window of 147 Orchard Street proclaimed for the last couple weeks. The reason – a new “rebellious alternative” boutique has arrived. Fashion Designer Brian Wood opened a boutique just before the holiday. The so-called Woodshop now is in session. Here you can purchase BWOOD-brand skate styles. And its […]
Once dubbed a “historic hole,” the former home of Gertel’s Bakery at 53 Hester Street is now filled with an eleven-story tumor. Sitting unpretty. Unencumbered, even. The finger building disrobed a couple weeks ago after many months of construction work. In fact, the project site was fallow until late last year. It’s been a long […]
If Essex Crossing is the greedy landlord, then “Shakespeare in the Parking Lot” could be considered the harassed rent regulated tenant. The long-running troupe – the Drilling Company – spent twenty seasons entertaining locals in the former municipal car park at Ludlow and Broome Streets. That run ended with a performance of Othello last August, […]
The General is deposed. With EMM Group having fully vacated the premises, 199 Bowery is now in the hands of the Tao Group. And the evidence on the ground is starting to reflect the change in ownership. The conversion is already underway, with demolition teams onsite for the gut renovations. Chris Santos – proprietor of […]
Here’s one out of left field. Truck-to-store mini-chain Calexico suddenly shuttered its Lower East Side HQ at 153 Rivington Street last week. Reason given, as per the computer printout, is “renovations and repair” work. The closure was sudden and somewhat surprising, given that it’s a well-oiled machine and usually fairly full. We spoke to a few […]
If Lovely Day gets its way, will it be one? We are hearing some chatter of late that the decade-old Lovely Day cafe on Elizabeth Street has grand plans for the Lower East Side. In particular, sources say that the eclectic, yet popular Thai cafe hopes to open a location at 14 Orchard, currently home to […]
Early yesterday morning – roughly 2:30am – a 28-year-old man plunged to his death from a sixth-floor balcony at 38 Delancey Street. The victim had been sitting on the balcony railing, facing the building, when he fell backward. CBS New York followed up on the story (amongst many others), and gleaned info from the security […]
For the 73-year-old B&H Dairy, the frustration is mounting. Three months after the deadly Second Avenue explosion at its doorstep, reopening is still well on the horizon. Yes, the gears are in motion, but it’s painfully slow. The first DOB permit was issued last week, needed for installation of the requisite $28,000 fire suppression system; […]
