Chef Restaurant Supply on Bowery Scrubs Facade Logo
Small bits of personality are slowly being erased from the neighborhood landscape. That’s definitely no secret. Especially on the northern frontier of the Bowery, where glass and luxury have already invaded and infected the area with sterility. While each missing piece is not always so noticeable, taken as a whole, it’s devastating.
Such is the case over at 294 Bowery where scaffolding was recently erected for some facade maintenance. Within the last couple days, that fading bilingual “Chef” signage (of Chef Restaurant Supply) on the roofline brickwork was scrubbed and replaced with coats of cream-colored paint. Gone.
Meanwhile, a swing-stage pulley system has been in play on the facade above Tony Goldman’s graffiti wall for the last week or so. The south facing wall is receiving a bit of prep work. A return to advertising, perhaps?
