FAILE unsurprisingly caused quite a stir on the Lower East Side last week. The Brooklyn-based artist duo replaced JR’s “Lakota, North Dakota” wheat-paste with something more befitting the location. Tony Goldman’s graffiti wall now sports plenty of comic book color and sorta channels that whole genre of pulp fiction covers.
As would be expected, plenty of camera people were in tow to document the changing of the guard. Including Boogie reader Matthew Kraus who sent along the following video clip, which is essentially a brief appreciation of the final product.
The milkshake mavens at Black Tap scored approval last night from Community Board 3 for beer-wine at 177 Ludlow Street. Whether they take the deal or not, however, is another story. As previously reported, Joe Isidori and partner Christopher Barish seek a beer-wine complement to the burgers and shakes at Black Tap LES. We learned that […]
More milestones for the Essex Crossing mega-development. Last week, it was the capping of fourteen-story senior housing at Site 6; this week, its the erection of a new tower crane on Site 2 (aka 115 Delancey). The component parts had been stowed here for the better part of the last month, but not assembled until […]
Yesterday we reported that cocktail lounge, Ghost on Eldridge, disappeared from it namesake street. It had a four-year run before the auctioneer came and sold all furnishings. Yet the space is already accounted for. Ghost was operated by the Woodward Gallery directly across the street, and now we learn that they’re not yet done with the […]
Nine years after dropping anchor at 78 Orchard Street, MooShoes is currently undergoing a massive renovation. When the beloved vegan shoe store reopens, though, it’ll be a departure from what you remember. Something new altogether. The proverbial pivot. Passing by the store, it’s quite clear that the space is now bisected. Two separate business units. […]
A Hispanic man, aged 67, was reportedly hit by a truck going northbound shortly after noon. Blood and even some body parts were, for a time, scattered on the asphalt. Cops condoned off the area and closed the street to traffic, but it’s since reopened. The victim’s condition was listed as critical, with both his legs […]
Lacking moxie, Moxy is about destruction. Indeed, parent company Marriott hotels, vis-a-vis landowner Lighthouse Group, is about to raze a half-block of East Village history to construct a 300-room lodge geared specifically toward millenials with disposable income. That’s Moxy. Word of its inroads into the neighborhood first started circulating in February 2015. Now, a year-and-a-half […]
Yep. You read it here first. There are three new bars, plus one restaurant expansion happening on a two-block stretch of Clinton Street. And all at once. Three-quarters of those businesses appear on the August SLA subcommittee agenda for Community Board 3, and will be heard by the advisory body tonight. 61 Clinton Street Speedy […]
Logan Hicks completed his masterpiece at the Bowery Graffiti Wall yesterday afternoon with the fifth and final layer of stenciling. No more drama with ill-equipped infrastructure and warped boards. Round 2 took five days to complete. Basically, one layer of stencil painting per day. As previously reported, “Story of My Life” captures a street scene […]
Sad news. Jeffrey Ruhalter, the beloved butcher who held court in the Essex Street Market for decades, passed away last Wednesday from cancer. He was 60. The grieving family released the following statement. Sylvia and Allen Ruhalter, their daughter Francine Levine, cousins, nieces, and nephews and friends mourn the loss of our beloved Jeffrey Richard […]
Hello, world. The LinkNYC kiosks along the Bowery are now on line. Fully operational, and ready to ruin your sidewalk experience. Four such terminals were installed over the last month, situated between Delancey and Stanton Streets. These were the first LinkNYC stations planted on the Lower East Side. Voices of concern are already making their […]
