Sweet-toothed neighbors (and their dentists) will likely revel in the news that Sweet Buttons Desserts is now serving its bite-sized snacks. The bake shop officially opened at 84 Rivington on Sunday afternoon, one week after the soft launch, and attracted some foot traffic from the rather stagnant pedestrian mall.
What do you think of the Sweet Buttons cupcakes…and their overall presence on Orchard Street?
Gigi Li is currently the sitting Chair of Community Board 3. Her three-plus years as purported puppet of Susan Stetzer and the Silver machine have been tarnished by controversy. In such short order, she managed to piss off many people within the district, including member peers. Here are five reasons why Gigi Li should step […]
It’s been four months since the Department of Design and Construction broke ground on the Forsyth Street Plaza project (and six years since its introduction). In that time, a demolition crew punched through the bulwark masonry at the base of the Manhattan Bridge, leaving behind a field of dirt; work also began on the underground […]
Almost a year later, the old Tammany Hall is ready for rebirth. Before you know it, the drunken hordes on Orchard Street will resume screaming about being a “small town girl living in a lonely world” who’s livin’ on a prayer … or some shit. Booting your sanity until morning. In other words, the second outpost […]
Three weeks ago, an unlicensed dump truck driver coming off the Manhattan Bridge struck and killed 83-year-old Ka Chor Yau who was crossing Canal Street. Maykel Felix-Tejada was arrested and the vehicle impounded curbside (it’s still there). The fatal collision underscored the necessity of redesigning the bridge approach, which is basically a dangerous archipelago of concrete medians […]
Housecleaning has begun at 355 Grand Street, the endangered non-landmarked landmark. The wave of luxury living is breaking here, and both ground floor businesses were given the boot; a gold-plated boot, at that. Interboro Properties purchased the historic corner row-house back in December for $4 million. But there is still some time. Flowers Cafe, on […]
If you’ve noticed a lack of pigeons in and around Washington Square Park, you’re eyes haven’t deceived you. This past Tuesday, a mass pigeon abduction reportedly took place, and in broad daylight (approximately 3pm). This kind of thing has happened on and off over the last ten years; the end game is usually that they’re sold in Pennsylvania […]
Organic juice bars are spreading around the city unchecked like a plague, seizing that title from the frozen yogurt industry. The eastern border of SoHo will soon add another. Brooklyn-based juicery Tiny Empire is getting larger, expanding to 234 Lafayette Street (corner of Spring). It’s already carved out a chunk of the storefront previously occupied […]
Now that Barramundi (and 2nd Floor on Clinton) is swimming with the fishes, so to speak, proprietor Tony Powe is on the move. Literally three blocks south to the corner of Delancey Street, joining focres with two-year-old cabaret Moscow 57. Florence Fabricant filed a dispatch in the New York Times this week breaking the news. […]
More beautification for Orchard Street this week. Flatbed trucks were spotted delivering iron tree guards to the sidewalks of Orchard Street this week. Installation began on the northern terminus and is slowly headed southward. The ornate guards now act as deterrent to tree-bound bike locks and dog droppings. The landscape revitalization goes hand-in-hand with overall […]
The inmates have taken control and the babysitter Nurse Ratched is nowhere to be found. The drunken frat compound that is Gotham Court certainly lived up to its reputation over the weekend. We’re hearing from folks in the vicinity that an apartment at 151 Essex Street held “one of the biggest deck parties of the […]
