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. […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel is already showing some measurable progress at 215 Chrystie Street. A tiny concrete section of the incoming superstructure now hugs the Avalon building, reaching roughly two stories in height.

Earlier this week, the New York Post ran an item that Beyer Blinder Belle is not designing Ian Schrager’s 28-story Public Hotel on Chrystie Street.

Ian Schrager Breaks Ground on Chrystie Street ‘Public’ Hotel

Posted June 9, 2014 at 6:00 am

The oval parking lot south of the Avalon Chrystie is now cordoned off, inaccessible behind the newly-constructed perimeter plywood. Yes, Ian Schrager’s “Public” Hotel is most certainly ready for its moment to block in the sun. A reader submitted the above photo showing that the ground has officially been breached by backhoe. It starts. Excavation is […]
