With Demolition Underway, First Interior Renderings of 50 Clinton Street Are Released

Posted February 20, 2015 at 5:11 am

The low-rise row of retail along Clinton Street died so that luxury living could rise (nay, ruin) the block. No sooner did the scaffolding arrive at 50 Clinton than new interior renderings surfaced about the replacement development. This, of course, is the future location of a seven-story luxury condo project by the hand of DHA […]

Demolition Begins at 50 Clinton Street Ahead of New 7-Story Development

Posted February 17, 2015 at 5:10 am

It’s coming down. More than a year of nervous anticipation now culminates in destruction for the mid-section of Clinton Street. Indeed, the once proud one-story row of retail comprising 50-62 Clinton Street is a few jackhammer chisels from demolition. Yeah, the permits were filed back in December, so no huge surprise. However, the reality just […]

Subway to Debut Sixth 10002 Outpost on Clinton Street Next Week

Last modified January 28, 2015 at 11:07 am

The sixth Subway franchise within the confines of 10002 (not a typo) mere days from reality. Storefront signage was installed last week at 200 Clinton Street (corner of East Broadway), and teases the promise of breakfast all day (don’t forget, plastic bread). Word on the street is that it’ll open shop sometime next week. Just in […]

East Village Wine & Liquors is Days from Reopening at New Clinton Street Locale

Posted January 21, 2015 at 5:17 am

East Village Wine & Liquors closed its Stanton Street headquarters over the holidays after roughly a ten-year tenancy. Signage is deposed from the storefront and the security gates are shuttered. Worry not, though. The long-running Lower East Side liquor store – a misnomer of a business – is moving around the corner to 80-82 Clinton […]

Fire-Scorched ‘Black Crescent’ Staging Fundraiser This Weekend to Help Reopen on Clinton Street

Posted January 8, 2015 at 5:20 am

Facing massive adversity, Black Crescent is hell-bent on returning to its former glory at 76 Clinton Street. The seafood joint – on the block for exactly one year – succumbed to a basement blaze last Friday evening. Firefighters arrived and quickly extinguished the flames, but in doing so, pretty much sidelined the business. Earlier this […]

Posted January 5, 2015 at 5:22 am

Black Crescent on Clinton Street is out of commission for the duration, thanks to an alleged electrical fire in its basement over the holiday weekend. The fire reportedly sparked Friday evening shortly before midnight, and quickly sidelined service. Firefighters extinguished the flames, but busted through all the windows to do so. It’ll probably be awhile, […]

Subway is Opening a New Outpost on Clinton Street, Its 6th in 10002

Posted December 29, 2014 at 5:00 am

Last week saw the release the seventh annual “State of the Chains Report,” which indicated a break-even ranking for chain stores infiltrating the Lower East Side in 2014. Meaning franchise locations within the confines of the 10002 zip code held steady [PDF] at forty-seven. Which, by the way, is still ridiculous. And Subway remains the second largest […]
