‘Ma Non Troppo’ Women’s Boutique Relocates to Former Macaron Shop on Stanton Street

Posted August 19, 2016 at 5:00 am

Clinton Street proved futile for Ma Non Troppo, so it’s on a westward march. Fleeing an address known for its retail turnover. Indeed, the trendy women’s boutique packed its bags earlier this month after less than a year in business, and will soon reopen at 101 Stanton Street. Signs at the new location promise an opening […]

When Chair Up packed its bags for a new retail space around the corner on Delancey Street, chatter on the block indicated that a shoe store of some kind was opening in its stead. It only grew latter as time went on, yet not much was otherwise known. Until today. It’s time to lace up. […]

With Sabit NYC in the Dust, New Gallery Shop Debuts at 43 Clinton Street

Posted July 15, 2016 at 5:17 am

You won’t hear the cawing parrot outside 43 Clinton Street anymore. A mascot for Sabit the Shopp, the pet no longer has a retail home. Sabit, the urban apparel boutique, called it quits in May. It had been slinging Japanese-style streetwear on Clinton Street since late 2014. Not quite two years in business here. We’re […]

Posted July 15, 2016 at 5:12 am

For about an hour Wednesday night, the Soho House on Ludlow Street was pranked. All it took was a little bit of sidewalk chalk and a pair of insults. An anonymous prankster tagged the concrete on either side of 139 Ludlow Street with two warning messages. Heading north – “warning, bullshit zone ahead.” And heading […]

As One Vape Shop Exits Hell Square, Another Sparks Up

Posted July 8, 2016 at 5:15 am

Less than a month after VapeYa was smoked out of Orchard Street, another such shop just opened two weeks ago. Just down the block, too. The Lucky Panda Vape Shop (and lounge) is now holding court upstairs at 154 Orchard Street, formerly a salon and, most recently, a pop-up for that Interpol-Wu Tang supergroup. And it’ll […]
