New Year’s Eve is upon us, party planning in full swing. So, here’s us imagining what SNL’s Stefon might say about Solas up on East Ninth Street:
New York’s hottest club is Solas. Part cubicle farm, part fight club, this popular gathering spot for backpack wearing adults is the creation of Douche Bigalow. This place has everything! Vomit slides, hospital gurney bumper cars, red bulls. And guess who may drop by! Is that a homeless woman eating a rotisserie chicken from her purse? No, it’s Rachel Zoe!
Here is the statement from Con Edison regarding the devastating explosion on 2nd Avenue today. A dozen were injured, but thus far, no fatalities reported. Two buildings already collapsed though, 121-123 2nd Avenue. Apparently the public utility had been onsite conducting an inspection to “evaluate the work the building plumber was doing inside 121 2nd Avenue […]
There are numerous reports that the mixed-use tenement at 121 2nd Avenue exploded shortly before 3:30pm. Flames quickly spread to the adjacent building at 123 2nd Avenue. Authorities say that the cause of the explosion is gas-related, and that there are tenants trapped in the collapsed wreckage. It’s being called a “7-alarm explosion.” Sushi Park […]
Ladies and gents, we might have a taker for Rob Shamlian’s embattled bar space at the corner of Orchard and Stanton Streets. The Derby (fka Tiny Fork) closed for good back in January, and advertised the business as for sale almost immediately. Looks like the controversial Martignetti brothers (Brinkley’s, East Pole) are grabbing the bait. According […]
Tonight, Grand Street Settlement is hosting the Lower East Side’s Long Term Recovery Group for a Town Hall style info session. The aim is to ensure that if and when disaster strikes the neighborhood again, residents will be ready. LES Ready!, was born in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and has been prepping the community in disaster awareness […]
Back in November, a westbound drunk driver on Delancey Street reportedly rammed the local newsstand at the northwest corner of Clinton. The early-morning incident dislodged the Cemusa box from its sidewalk perch with ease, and the equipment was subsequently carted away. During the interim, its rectangular platform of concrete had been sitting exposed, a tripping […]
On this day in… 1823 – The New York Gas Light Company received its charter from the State Legislature. Headquartered at 102 Centre Street, the utility was tasked with replacing the whale-oil street lamps which were common since the 1760s. Their reach was the territory south of Grand Street. The advent of electric lighting in […]
The boutique hotel at 119 Orchard Street is still hobbling to the finish line after nearly five years of demolition and stop-start construction. We’ve had an unencumbered view of the facade for many moons, but it’s still an active project site. Now there is some progress to report regarding the ground level commercial unit, which […]
Comic book-inspired fashion is headed to the Bowery this weekend. In a rather strange pairing, Marvel Comics recently jumped in bed with the monthly shopping club Five Four to create a limited-edition collection. The new collaboration is described in media materials as the “conclusion of two brands coming together around their desire to constantly interpret and […]
A former home of artisanal coffee will soon transition to high-end ice cream. The storefront in question is 221 East Broadway, former headquarters of Pushcart Coffee, which dead-ended a year ago. The space was a vacancy until now. Newcomer Ice & Vice just signed a ten-year lease for the 575 square-foot store; rent is $5,031 per […]
Well, sort of. Construction at the former Sleepy’s mattress center on Delancey Street uncovered some classic ghost signage. Of course, this location was previously the home of Ratner’s, the long-running kosher dairy restaurant that folded over a decade ago. Shadows of the once-illustrious red neon are now clearly visible, thanks to the removal of the […]
