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!

Touring the Creepy Abandoned Hospital Complex on Ellis Island [PHOTOS]

Creepy. Cold. Intense. Haunted. All apt adjectives to describe the unused section of Ellis Island designated as ruins. It is on the south side of this national park – straddling the state lines of New York and New Jersey – that a maze-like collection of twenty-nine buildings sits. Rotting away from the inside out. Indeed, […]

Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street. It was to be a place more approachable than the OG spot. Those plans ultimately hit a dead-end (F18 Gallery opened there instead), though, and owners Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von […]

Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]

After a Year of Inactivity, Ron English is the Next Artist to Paint the Bowery Graffiti Wall

The mobile boom was rolled into place beside the freshly-constructed Bowery graffiti wall early yesterday morning. In covering this slab for years, this is the surest signal that a change of the guard is in the cards. Indeed, the next entrant is already at bat to paint a mural here. Acclaimed street artist Ron English has […]
