Rumor: ‘Taqueria Diana’ to Open Another Location on Clinton Street

Posted July 26, 2016 at 5:00 am

A mini-chain of Mexican restaurants across the city is about to open its fourth location. Lower East Side next. The C&C Prosperity Dumpling offshoot at 69 Clinton Street shuttered back in May. Controversy surrounding the original Eldridge dumpling house (i.e. back-alley kitchen and prep) eventually caught up with this spot. That coupled with the earlier […]

‘Clinton Furniture and Mattress’ is the Latest Mom-and-Pop to Shutter Along Clinton Street

Posted July 25, 2016 at 9:25 am

Another Lower East Side longtimer just bit the dust. Once the seven-story luxury condo development at 50 Clinton Street entered the picture, it was only a matter of time before some of the mom-and-pop shops on the block foundered. Especially those directly in line of sight. Today’s obituary is for Clinton Furniture and Mattress. This for-locals […]

Posted July 19, 2016 at 5:00 am

By now, you’ve probably noticed the installation of a mid-block crosswalk on Clinton Street between Grand and East Broadway.

With Sabit NYC in the Dust, New Gallery Shop Debuts at 43 Clinton Street

Posted July 15, 2016 at 5:17 am

You won’t hear the cawing parrot outside 43 Clinton Street anymore. A mascot for Sabit the Shopp, the pet no longer has a retail home. Sabit, the urban apparel boutique, called it quits in May. It had been slinging Japanese-style streetwear on Clinton Street since late 2014. Not quite two years in business here. We’re […]

Yunnan Kitchen/BBQ Folds After 4 Years on Clinton Street

Posted June 30, 2016 at 5:19 am

Clinton Street wasn’t too kind to the Yunnan Kitchen/BBQ restaurant. The farm-to-table Chinese restaurant will shutter on Thursday (June 30) after four years on the block. It’s just another victim in a line of foodie havens that have unsuccessfully tried to make it work here. Yunnan Kitchen opened in 2012, having replaced the beloved Lucky […]

Cursed 71 Clinton Street Space Reboots with ‘The Whales’ this Week

Posted May 31, 2016 at 5:00 am

Down, but still not out, one Clinton Street bar-owner is apparently trying again. Those keeping track know full well that 71 Clinton Street is no stranger to turnover. It’s a perennially hexed property. Every restaurant in this spot since the eviction of Fat Hippo six years ago has been from the same principle – Patate […]

C&C Prosperity Dumpling Offshoot Likewise Closes Shop on Clinton Street

Posted May 17, 2016 at 9:27 am

The kid brother of Prosperity Dumpling is likewise cooked, it appears. Several readers have noticed that C&C Prosperity Dumpling on Clinton Street – the outpost opened back in 2011 – is closed without explanation. Grate is locked and the business line is forever a busy signal. No signs or announcements, either. Thus ends the prosperous era […]

Posted April 14, 2016 at 9:22 am

​Remember WD-50, Rothstein’s Hardware, 1492? These commercial establishments are all buried beneath the seven-story hulk at 50 Clinton Street. And the superstructure just topped out. The luxury development boasts thirty-seven condo units (designed by Paris Forino, if you care about such things) priced between $1.8 and $3 million, 24-hour doorman, gym, and rooftop terraces. Five of […]
