The filming occupation of Now You See Me on the Lower East Side continues this morning, as production is now centered outside the 88 Orchard cafe. There are plenty of crowds, owing in part to a scene with Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers). We are told that Jesse Eisenberg will show up sometime today as well, this after shooting at Streit’s last night.
Thanks to the Great Frog metal boutique for sending along the shots.

Fourth Arts Block recently announced its upcoming public art program, kicking off in April 2014, and it’s still looking for proposals. “FABLES” is the cleverly-titled endeavour, and yet another invocation of visual flavor for the Lower East Side streets.

Platinum Properties has yet to unload 174 Delancey Street from its portfolio. The two-building package was put on the market last July for $8 million; it’s since been reduced to $7.25 million.

Chinatown now memorializes one of its own – Private Danny Chen. Henceforth, Elizabeth Street between Canal and Bayard will be known as “Danny Chen Way.” That’s right, six months after Community Board 3 approved the designation, City Council rubber stamped the measure. “This was a vote for tolerance, acceptance, and above all, respect,” said Council […]
