Another Bowery Restaurant Supply Company Packs it in

Posted June 29, 2016 at 5:09 am

Seven years after its arrival, the restaurant supply company at 202 Bowery is now gone. Amazing Value Restaurant Equipment, as the business is aptly entitled, fled the gold coast last week. We’re told that the operation relocated to Brooklyn. A leasing sign in the window points to Jan Sasson’s brokerage handling the store now. Word […]

Retail Space at Annabelle Selldorf’s Bowery Condo Hits the Market

Posted June 28, 2016 at 5:13 am

It took five days after sales went live this month for a buyer to snap up the 4,000 square-foot penthouse atop Annabelle Selldorf’s 13-story Bowery condo. The literal crown jewel is currently under contract for a whopping $17 million, which annihilates records for the area. Two weeks later, the 8,439 square-foot retail space in the base […]

Ambitious ‘Windows on the Bowery’ Placard Project to Highlight History of Thoroughfare, Launches July 5

Posted June 24, 2016 at 5:00 am

These days, the Bowery rarely gets due recognition for its pioneering architecture, and early contributions to myriad art forms, such as tattooing, punk, vaudeville, and Yiddish Theater. Instead, it’s really all about which historic buildings can be sold to the highest bidder for demolition and re-development. Armed with a platoon of historians and visually-striking imagery, […]

Photographer David Godlis Takes us Back to the 1970s Bowery

Posted June 22, 2016 at 5:15 am

It’s mid 1970s gritty New York City and you’re perusing through the Village Voice when a large ad for a bar you’ve never heard of catches your eye. Night after night you find yourself heading down to this seedy part of town which has drawn you in with its sweaty air, loud punk music, and […]

Nearing 19 Stories, CitizenM Finally Makes Plans to Meet with Nervous Neighbors on the Bowery

Posted June 17, 2016 at 5:11 am

The CitizenM hotel superstructure has already reached the halfway point of its controversial ascension. Upon its eventual completion – originally slated for winter 2016 – this eyesore will sit nineteen stories above the Bowery and boast approximately 300 hotel rooms. And until this point, there has been little to no community outreach from the developer, […]

Luzzo’s Pizza has a New Pizza Nook Inside 310 Bowery Bar

Last modified June 16, 2016 at 9:18 am

Last month, local chain Luzzo’s Pizza quietly debuted a new outpost on the Bowery. Not standalone, though. The restaurant now operates a minuscule satellite in the front entrance of newcomer 310 Bowery Bar. A symbiotic relationship. The setup is a smaller replica of itself. The oven abuts the front window of 310 Bowery Bar, flanked […]

Three Years on, the Garis & Hahn Gallery on the Bowery Folds

Posted June 15, 2016 at 5:17 am

When new condos open up – this could be anywhere – the typical tenant is oftentimes a gallery of some kind. Usually with two surnames separated by an ampersand. And with limited shelf life. Like Garis & Hahn at 263 Bowery. The 2,422 square-foot gallery debuted in the first half of 2013, joining Takamichi Hair […]

Posted June 13, 2016 at 9:19 am

Let’s take a peek inside 250 Bowery. It is here that the International Center of Photography planted a flag last year, moving the museum from its longtime midtown perch. The plywood shed was removed from the facade a couple weeks ago, and new lettering affixed to the marquee. Inaugural exhibit – “Public, Private, Secret” – is […]
