Djerdan Burek at 91 Clinton is Kaput
Posted on: February 22nd, 2012 at 6:28 am by Elie
One and done. That’s right, barely a year after establishing itself at 91 Clinton Street, the fast food Balkan joint Djerdan Burek is kaput. The writing has seemingly been on the wall for awhile, as the establishment was usually empty at all the key times.
Did you dine at Djerdan Burek? What was your opinion?
The Con Artist collective now has its very own Artist Residency Program, called EPIC EPOCH. One lucky artist will receive three months of fully funded live and work space, culminating with a two-week solo show at the gallery. Additionally, there are a bunch of opportunities to to incent the creative; 6 artists will be selected for participation in group […]
“Beastie Boys Square” wasn’t the only hot-button issue at last night’s CB3 transportation subcommittee meeting. Suits from Con Edison presented an informational session for their initiative to battle the weather-related issue of stray voltage. Their appearance before Community Board 3 was no doubt sparked (at least partially) by the scaffold-spurred dog electrocution that transpired on Clinton […]
Amidst a sea of restaurants, John’s Deli & Grocery defied the trend, and opened its bodega at 37-39 Clinton Street in September 2009. But their presence on the block is nearing conclusion. The leasing sign affixed to the store canopy all but confirms the news. Given the overall trajectory of Clinton Street, we’d actually be […]
We haven’t seen much in the way of The Cobbler in these parts since late last year. At the time, namely November, the quasi-indie flick transformed a section of working class Forsyth Street into the faux setting that included a shoe shop and barber. Adam Sandler and Method Man spent weeks filming onsite. Well, it […]
Street writer RETNA recently returned to the Lower East Side after a notable two-year absence. His last paintwork in the neighborhood was at the Bowery graffiti wall in March 2012. Over the weekend, however, the LA-based artist was busy decorating the Rivington Street wall directly outside On Stellar Rays (near the Bowery). His token Hieroglyphics […]
“Beastie Boys Square” will not be rocking this party eight days a week. LeRoy McCarthy was dealt a fatal blow last night in his crusade to co-name the corner of Ludlow and Rivington “Beastie Boys Square.” The deck is certainly stacked against the applicant now that the transportation subcommittee of Community Board 3 voted to […]
Gary Shteyngart, whose growing trove of stellar books includes Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, is set to take part in the Tenement Museum’s latest installment of Tenement Talks. On Monday, March 31 at the Museum’s Visitor Center (103 Orchard St.), Shteyngart will be chatting about his latest work, Little Failure, a memoir which depicts […]
Fights Outside Hotel on Rivington This Weekend Have Neighbors Worried About Safety (and Continued Noise)
Guess that comical noise-mitigating signage isn’t quite working to CO-OP’s advantage. The trendy bar and its Hotel on Rivington (THOR) overlords are louder than ever these days. Viktor & Spoils, which was recently cut short, is now apparently serving again, but through an indoor connection. We’ve been hearing from several residents in the vicinity that […]
Nearly a year after the HPD delivered its parcels to the beleaguered Children’s Magical Garden, the green-thumbed members collectively filed a lawsuit in New York Supreme Court asking to be declared owners of the one non-city-owned parcel – 157 Norfolk Street. The paperwork was submitted to the city yesterday, and also seeks an unspecified amount in […]
Fans of San Marzano will not like this. It turns out the five-year-old pizzeria will not be returning to 71 Clinton Street, after all. This news arrives a month after we first reported on the devastating flood which rendered the space useless. At the time, we were told by management that there was no timetable […]
