Posted June 30, 2015 at 5:19 am

Mum has been the word at 165 Chrystie Street ever since Master Kitchen Supplies relocated across the park to the 38 Delancey condoplex. When scaffolding arrived onsite at the end of last year, it was the first sign of certain change. In fact, a ten-story tumor is on its way to the mid-block parcel. ODA-Architecture […]

Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel at 215 Chrystie Street Rises Above the Threshold

Posted June 5, 2015 at 5:15 am

Public is now public. Let the shadowcasting begin. The new Ian Schrager condo-hotel development at 215 Chrystie Street makes good on the nascent teaser signage and is now peeking above its plywood threshold for the first time.

Chelsea’s CRG Gallery is Moving to Chrystie Street Next Fall

Posted May 29, 2015 at 5:10 am

It’s a total cliche at this point. Small Chelsea gallery wooed by the Lower East Side packs up the showroom and moves. This narrative has been repeated time and again the last decade. The latest art house to hop onto this proverbial bandwagon – CRG Gallery. CRG Gallery will soon reopen in 195 Chrystie Street. […]

Where Antonioni’s failed, Taavo Somer hopes to strike again. After all, 177 Chrystie Street (corner of Rivington) is literally part of his backyard; everyone else is just living in it. Taavo Somer, the established restaurateur behind the popular destination, Freeman’s, is in talks to transform the former home of Antonioni’s into a new French restaurant. […]

Posted February 19, 2015 at 5:10 am

There’s some new street furniture crowding the sidewalk outside the Subway sandwich shop on Chrystie.

Antonioni’s Shutters After Less Than 2 Years on Chrystie Street

Posted February 12, 2015 at 5:10 am

When the honeymoon period of pay-to-play press plugging concludes and foodies have already moved to the next flavor of the week, lots of these newcomer restaurants tend to fade. Oftentimes gradually with a simple lie of “renovations” or “remodeling.” Or simply no word altogether. Well, Antonioni’s at the corner of Rivington and Chrystie opted for […]
