Eclectic boutique Miss Hoe chose 11 Kenmare (aka 176 Bowery) as the setting for its […]

Ricky’s is Opening Another Halloween Store Inside the Old Chase Bank on Delancey

Posted September 15, 2014 at 5:24 am

The defeated storefront of the old Chase Bank on Delancey worked well for the purposes of the Urs Fischer sculpture exhibit. Its armor of tags and paint was easily a textbook example of devolution.

‘Colfax and Bale’ Will Soon Bring Streetwear and Urban Vibes to 174 Ludlow Street

Posted August 21, 2014 at 6:09 am

Colfax and Bale sounds more like a high-end department store or maybe one of those law firms advertised on the subway. Far from it, though. It’s actually the name of a new street-style apparel store opening at 174 Ludlow Street. For the last year, 174 Ludlow had been a vacancy, with its security gate perpetually shuttered. […]
