88 Clinton Street is Ready for Its 4-Story Vertical Enlargement

Posted December 16, 2014 at 5:00 am

There’s just so much upscaling on Clinton Street these days, what with all the recent property sales in the multimillion-dollar range. It’s open season, for sure, and the character of this former frontier is forever changing. Both 86-88 Clinton Street are still on course for total transformation; renovations have been underway at both properties since […]

Strolling Down Clinton Street in 1985 [VIDEO]

Posted December 12, 2014 at 10:43 am

To experience a slice of Clinton Street in 1985, we defer to this rather simple 30-second YouTube clip shot by veteran comedian (and voice of the Red M&M) George Bettinger. We see father and son (presumably) walking southbound between Rivington and Stanton, and with clear view of the Hershey’s Stationers store at number 48. There […]

The 7-Story 50 Clinton Street Sets Up Sales Office up the Block at Former 20 Peacocks

Posted December 10, 2014 at 5:32 am

Things are rolling along fairly smoothly for DHA Capital, which shelled out $28 million for the seven parcels 50-64 Clinton Street earlier this fall. Now that all the businesses are gone – including the permanent loss of WD-50 – work can commence on dismantling the one-story row and the eventual seven-story replacement. In the meantime, […]

For months, there had been random rustling inside the vacancy left by Min’s Market. But now the expansion efforts of Clinton Street Baking Company into the adjacent is in full throttle. A corner-hogging sidewalk shed arrived onsite late last week, officially signaling the start of remodeling. Expect to eat in a much larger, 55-seat diner […]

A Post-mortem for WD-50 on Clinton Street [PHOTOS]

Posted December 5, 2014 at 5:33 am

And now, a post-mortem for WD-50 on Clinton Street, which concluded its eleven-year run this past Sunday. We ambled past yesterday evening only to find owner-chef Wylie Dufresne packing up the establishment that truly put him on the map. Geographically and culinarily. Dufresne and his team were loading up boxes in plain sight (i.e. floor-to-ceiling […]

67 Clinton Street is on the Market for $7M; Barramundi Safe for Now

Posted December 4, 2014 at 9:22 am

It’s probably safe to say that Clinton Street is currently experiencing something of a micro-level real estate bubble. Plenty of significant speculation activity happening in the midsection of this Lower East Side artery, particularly the yardage between Rivington and Stanton. Seriously, one need only recall the record-setting sale of the seven-parcel package comprising 50-62 Clinton, which netted an exorbitant $29 […]

Pip-Squeak Chapeau Boutique Ends Its Tenancy on Clinton Street

Posted December 3, 2014 at 5:30 am

Pip-Squeak Chapeau was seemingly a popular addition to the Clinton Street landscape upon its arrival back in 2011. Unfortunately for fans of the tiny boutique, though, this Lower East Side flirtation came to an end last week. It was ultimately a three-and-a-half year romance with the neighborhood. According to the Facebook page, Pip-Squeak Chapeau is […]

East Village Wine & Liquor Moving Around the Corner Onto Clinton Street

Posted November 25, 2014 at 9:22 am

East Village Wine & Liquor – a misnomer of a business headquartered at Stanton Street – is one of the more reliable shops out there. It’s also one of the only places that sells a certain brand of Aguardiente that we consume quite frequently. However, after about ten years in this corner spot, the booze depot […]

WD-50 Says Goodbye to the Lower East Side with Farewell Photo and Letter in the Window

Posted November 24, 2014 at 6:09 am

As we’ve been closely chronicling for the better part of the last year, WD-50 and the adjacent Clinton Street properties will soon fall for luxury condo development. One by one, each of the businesses along this low-rise stretch of real estate shuttered/moved, with Wylie Dufresne’s baby being the last. The restaurant will close at the […]

Posted November 21, 2014 at 6:03 am

WD-50 is slated to conclude its decade-long presence at 50 Clinton Street in just over a week (November 30). Demolition of the entire row of quaint commercial stock will transpire soon thereafter. Indeed, the former 1492 has already been boarded up with dismantling activities transpiring behind the plywood shroud. Demolition permits were issued earlier this […]
