173 Chrystie Sells for $15M, 10-Story ODA-Designed Tower Planned

Posted December 8, 2014 at 5:38 am

Looks like Neuman’s Kitchen catering will soon be giving up its hold on 173 Chrystie Street. Development is coming soon, and it should give you pause. ODA Architecture – bankrolling the hot mess of cantilevered condos at 100 Norfolk – has its muscle in this match as well. Public records indicate that Yaniv Cohen of […]

Explore the Artistic Side of ‘Madness’ at The Lodge Gallery Tomorrow

Posted October 28, 2014 at 9:30 am

How does one define madness? Is it chemical or environmental (or a bit of both)? Is a little madness necessarily a bad thing? And, as an artist, how does one interpret the theme of madness and its place in contemporary culture? The Lodge Gallery currently investigates some of these questions in its soon-to-end “Madness” exhibit. […]

While earth is moved and ground excavated for foundation work at 215 Chrystie Street, Ian Schrager is employing the hard sell with his first NYC location of Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel. As previously reported, there is both a hotel and condo component to this sun-eclipsing development. The 28-story tower includes eleven ultra-pricey condos atop the 370-room […]

Club to Condos: 141 Chrystie Street Pitched as New 12-Story Development Opportunity

Posted August 14, 2014 at 6:02 am

For years, the song remained the same at 141 Chrystie Street. But now the tune is changing from club to condo (well, maybe). Red Heels recently rechristened itself simply “LES Sports Bar,” promising “the best night in town” with Karaoke, happy hour, and the works. Yet the switcheroo was nothing more than rearranging the deck chairs […]

Chrystie Street Warehouse Will Sprout 9-Story ‘Albino’ Tower

Posted August 4, 2014 at 6:10 am

There are some neighborhood properties that you look at and just know they’re doomed. Especially those of the warehouse variety that still dot the landscape. Like the one at 125 Chrystie Street (corner of Broome). Its days as a commercial hub are numbered, soon to be replaced by an “albino” mess of glass luxury. Indeed. […]

205 Club on Chrystie Street Relaunches with Nolita House Vets

Earlier this year, we broke news that the Rochelle’s team on Chrystie Street (aka 19 Stanton) was allegedly in financial straits. Fast forward six months; half its business is now under new management. 205 Club, a name that’s gone through so many friggin’ iterations the last decade, is now operated by veterans of the recently-departed […]

Red Heels Sports Bar at 141 Chrystie on the Market for $1.2M in Key Money

Posted July 17, 2014 at 6:08 am

The nightlife woes of 141 Chrystie Street continue. Ever since the former law office was converted into a two-story nightclub three years ago, several concepts passed through the doors. All attempts have thus far been futile – Mystique, Chrystie 141, Inga, Bobby’s … and now Red Heels. A year after its debut, we’ve been noticing […]
