Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

Posted April 17, 2015 at 5:16 am

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]

Sales Go Live at 50 Clinton Street Condo Building that Killed WD-50

Posted April 10, 2015 at 5:00 am

The outdated row of retail comprising 50-62 Clinton Street still stands, but the tombstone signage continues to tease the next phase. As we’ve been reporting, the one-story collection of stores – which had included WD-50 – will fall so that a seven-story condo project can rise here. The price range to live in this beacon of […]

Gaming Incubator WAKA WAKA Shutters Clinton Street Workspace

Posted April 8, 2015 at 5:10 am

Put your quarters away; there will be no more “Killer Queen” sessions on the Lower East Side. That’s right. It’s game over for WAKA WAKA, the short-lived indie gaming incubator on Clinton Street. It lasted about eight months. The whitebox hang spawned last July after Bang Bang took his infamous tattoo studio down to Broome […]

50 Clinton Luxury Development Debuts ‘Sales Gallery’ and Teaser Signage

Posted March 31, 2015 at 5:00 am

News regarding 50 Clinton Street is now a torrent. The one-story row of retail will imminently fall brick by brick to allow seven stories of luxury to muscle onto the scene. The insult added to that injury is the new teaser banner that advertises residences starting at a slender $975K. What a steal! And now that we […]

Wylie Dufresne’s Dad to Open BYGGYZ Sandwich Shop on Clinton Street

Posted March 24, 2015 at 5:18 am

Wylie Dufresne (and WD-50) may have departed Clinton Street, but his dad, Dewey, is entering the ever-evolving restaurant row. You read that right. The elder Dufresne is taking over the former bodega at 37-39 Clinton, John’s Deli, to unleash a long-delayed sandwich shop called BYGGYZ. Apparently this concept has been in the works for three […]

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 […]
