Nor’East Clam Shack to Become Alexander Olch Seasonal Pop-Up

Posted on: December 6th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

As of this week, Grey Lady’s four-month-old Nor’East Clam Shack at 77 Delancey is temporarily shutting down for the winter months. The window paper was enough of a clue; it’s hibernation until warmer weather prevails. During the rest of the season, the tiny adjoining store space will be leased to a boutique threads shop.

The pop-up retail occupant is Alexander Olch and his line of men’s formal accessories, including neckties, bow-ties and handkerchiefs. It’ll be open through the duration of the season, with Nor’East returning sometime in the spring with a refined menu. Owner Gavin McLaughlin tells us that there will be longer business hours with more soups and sanwiches offered.

New Subway Newsstand Opens at Broadway-Lafayette Station

Until this week, the Broadway-Lafayette subway station had no concessions. No longer the case. An under-utilized storage space beside the downtown IRT platform was converted this week for commerce. The nascent newsstand has been stocking its minuscule shelves the last few days and just opened yesterday. Nothing earth-shattering here; you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ’em all. […]

‘STOMP’ is Staying Put at the Orpheum, but Must Cough up $2.2M Fine

STOMP is staying put, after all. An arbitrator’s ruling in December prohibits termination of its lease. A year ago, the long-running production informed the landlord of the Orpheum that the production would leave the building for an unnamed theater in Times Square. Off Broadway going Broadway. The disheartening news came at a bad time – […]

Party’s Over: Peter Missing Paints 20-Foot-Long Mural for Lower East Side History Month

The upside-down martini glass of yore, symbolizing the “party’s over” mantra of the eighties East Village, now has a dedicated mural. Its creator, artist-activist Peter Missing, painted a giant, cycloptic version with frequent collaborator Cyril Mazard at the corner of East Houston and Second Avenue (i.e. First Street Green). Missing and Mazard began the task […]
