One of the flashpoint issues on the Community Board 3 agenda for the SLA subcommittee is the Sunshine Lounge concept at 143 East Houston. As we first reported last fall, Landmark Cinemas is pushing to transform its popular movie house into a “dinner-and-a-movie” pairing, which would also include full liquor. CB3 is not completely on board, having already forced their withdrawal back in December. At said meeting, Sunshine rep Mike Fant indicated that the lease is up for renewal later this year, and that on-premise rights would help with the higher rents. Even though they’re currently turning profits.
Reps will reappear Monday night to try again, and with an updated application. The completed paperwork now includes a proposed food and cocktail menu for the Sunshine Lounge. It’s reprinted below.
Do you think it’s a good idea for the Sunshine Cinema to start serving food and booze? Weigh in!
The Department of Design and Construction last week embarked on another Lower East Side infrastructure project. This time it’s another water main job. The upcoming campaign is two-fold: replacement of both the water main and sewers beneath Clinton Street from Madison to East Broadway. Known as the “Accelerated Water Main Replacement Project” (aka MEDA002), we […]
In a poisoned, jaded world, this show is a limitless panacea. Samoa’s vocabulary is so innately understandable by anyone with a heart that still beats. And loved by those of us who understand that art and music and performance can create change, rather than just swell our pockets or decorate our rooms. It’s art that […]
Bobby Zarin, former owner of Zarin Fabrics and husband to Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, passed away on Saturday after a years-long battle with thyroid cancer. He was 71. “With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully [Saturday] surrounded by […]
Three masked men reportedly robbed a Rivington Street bodega last night, police said. Two of the men allegedly entered the LES Mini Mart at 127 Rivington Street just before midnight, and held up the cashier at gunpoint. The duo removed an unknown quantity of cash from the register and cigarettes from behind the counter. The […]
Controversial landlord-developer Michael Shah and his Line Group nightlife arm were dealt a major blow on Wednesday when the State Liquor Authority denied their proposal for a Mexican nightspot called Dos Cientos. In the works for nearly a year, Shah and his usual suspects had been trying to convert the three-years-vacant Preserve 24 space at the […]
New York Sushi Ko is calling it quits after more than four years on Clinton Street. The cubbyhole omakase joint just north of Delancey Street will close tomorrow after business hours conclude. The news was first conveyed on Instagram last week, though a reason for the closure was not. Original owner Steven Penchenski opened Sushi […]
The Golden Arches are once again perched above Delancey Street. Check out the new look. The notorious McDonald’s here at the corner of Essex Street has been under renovations since September, and is ready for a reincarnation. The main question – can it shed the seedy reputation garnered over the last twenty years? When McDonald’s […]
To avoid any conflict of interest, the chair of Community Board 3 stepped down. The now-former chairman Jamie Rogers officially relinquished his role on December 31, announcing to the advisory body that he would not run for re-election. This action was expected, though, as Rogers’ wife, Carlina Rivera, was elected to represent District 2 as […]
Here’s something unexpected. Essex Street will soon welcome another arcade. Yesterday afternoon, the canopy for Water World Amusements was hoisted to the north marquee of 35 Essex Street, formerly home to a flooring warehouse. (The south space went to Delancey Wines last year.) Strange name for the business, given its disposition as an arcade and […]
Gone is Cup & Saucer, and here is the replacement – the so-called Pizza Cafe and Grill, which opened this week. Signage for the newcomer first arrived in November, and has been tough to digest. It’s definitely gonna take some getting used to. Meanwhile, the interior of 89 Canal Street was upended and turned sideways […]
