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?
So much for a comeback. Barely three months after Subway returned from a debilitating flood, its Essex Street sandwich shop is donezo. A short-lived recovery, to say the least. Marquee signage was pried from the facade last week and leasing info propped in the windows. It’s not entirely surprising that the second coming of Subway […]
There’s some positive pre-holiday news coming from the Children’s Magical Garden. The ongoing lawsuit against developers regarding a third of the parkland – first levied last year – is moving forward. A motion to dismiss by the defendant was denied. First, though, a quick recap of the situation on the ground. Since 1985, the Children’s […]
Clinton Street Baking Company is almost there. Debut of its new expansion is just around the corner. Literally and figuratively. The corner storefront at East Houston – formerly occupied by Min’s Market – has been officially branded, rounded, painted red, and accented with corrugated siding, further evoking that classic diner vibe. Dedicated menu boards are […]
VolaVida Gallery was down but apparently not out. The nascent street art showroom relocated to our neck of the woods from Alphabet City after some internal drama. Specifically, to the Pink Building at the corner of Grand and Orchard Streets. We are told that VolaVida just joined forces with the Avant Garde vape gallery/lounge, to share […]
A week after dozens of Lower East Siders vented frustrations with MTA bus service during a town hall, one of its drivers struck a 64-year-old pedestrian yesterday morning at the intersection of Madison and Jackson Streets. The unidentified victim was reportedly crossing southward when an M22 bus struck, and pinned him for an extended period of […]
In which the Lower East Side receives its first official BitCoin dispenser. CoinSource, a leader in BitCoin ATMs (“BTM”), unveiled the first neighborhood machine yesterday inside 61 Delancey Street. The technology sits among the grocery shelving at the N&N Delancey Smoke Shop. From a recent press release that claims the LES as New York’s “trendiest neighborhood”: […]
Steve Croman’s Threefold Increase in Rent Forces ‘BarBossa’ from Elizabeth Street After More than a Decade in Business
For BarBossa, the end is here. That’s all she wrote. The longtime Brazilian-ish restaurant terminated its Little Italy presence after dinner service Sunday evening. Thus caps a dirty dozen years at 232 Elizabeth Street. A letter to the community is taped to the front door thanks the community for its patronage: Sunday, November 22 will […]
That unneeded boutique hotel down at Allen and Broome Streets just hit the three-year mark. A milestone, to say the least. To mark the occasion and its recent capping at seven stories, the replacement building at 263 Broome now shimmers yellow. Tacky is probably the most appropriate word. These yellow spotlights were activated beneath the […]
For Alicia Keys, the concrete jungle where dreams are made is apparently on the Lower East Side. The multiplatinum, Grammy-winning artist was spotted outside Parkside Lounge on Saturday evening posing for cameras. Being a current spokesperson for Levi’s, Alicia Keys was busy filming a commercial for the brand. Boogie reader FP sent along the above […]
The easternmost section of Chinatown Grand Street, typically bounded by Allen and the Bowery, is threatened. It would appear that real estate carpetbaggers want this area to gentrify as quickly as possible. The pieces are now falling into place, with brokers pitching this as the new gallery district. A westward extension of what already happened […]
