The corner of Orchard and Delancey

Sinking Sidewalk at Orchard and Delancey Poses Danger to Pedestrians

Posted April 15, 2014 at 6:00 am

Now here’s a corner just waiting for a sacrificial leg for a feast. The sidewalk outside Rox gallery – Delancey and Orchard – has been sinking for quite some time. At least the last six months. Of course, the terrible winter and recent spat of heavy rain couldn’t have helped matters much. The curb is […]


Here Are the Urs Fischer Sculptures Inside the Old Chase Bank Branch on Delancey [PHOTOS]

Posted April 8, 2014 at 6:07 am

The former Chase Bank at 104 Delancey has been shuttered for two years. Now a derelict mess, you wouldn’t necessarily know to enter. And that “secret” cache is what Gagosian Gallery was probably after with its high-profile Urs Fischer sculpture installation. The month-long pop-up is right there for the taking, but most would be deterred […]

Hold onto your hats, and curb that enthusiasm: the Lower East Side is moving ever-further into the mainstream (if it wasn’t already). Riding on the coattails of next month’s first annual Lower East Side History Month, the city (via NYC and Company) has gathered enough points of interest for tourists and Manhattanites alike to feature the area […]

Artsy Faberge Eggs Around the Lower East Side as Part of ‘The Big Egg Hunt’

Posted April 3, 2014 at 11:10 am

Sunday afternoon, we saw a few handymen lugging a large egg on Essex Street. It was a WTF moment until we realized the piece is part of “The Big Egg Hunt,” a citywide Easter charity event that runs through the end of the month. Faberge is lead sponsor of the Hunt, and released 275 artfully […]

Red Royalty Gallery Opening at Long-Dormant 64 Delancey

Posted March 26, 2014 at 9:30 am

Even the rough-and-tumble Delancey Street is not immune to the all-out gallery assault. Showrooms are slowly trickling down onto the main drag. Enter the Red Royalty Gallery at 64 Delancey, situated right beside a Subway sandwich shop. Its signage just went up. This particular store has pretty much been a dead zone for any retail […]

Gagosian Gallery Launching Pop-Up for Urs Fischer in Former Chase Bank on Delancey

Posted March 24, 2014 at 6:09 am

Even after Chase Bank purchased the Washington Mutual assets back in 2009, the branch at 104 Delancey Street remained. And for longer than we had anticipated. Three years passed with two Chase locations operating across the street from each other. Consolidation happened nearly two years ago, and the storefront has remained a black hole ever […]

Adam Sandler Back in the Neighborhood to Film ‘The Cobbler’

Posted March 12, 2014 at 6:04 am

We haven’t seen much in the way of The Cobbler in these parts since late last year. At the time, namely November, the quasi-indie flick transformed a section of working class Forsyth Street into the faux setting that included a shoe shop and barber. Adam Sandler and Method Man spent weeks filming onsite. Well, it […]

Posted March 7, 2014 at 6:08 am

Richies, that longstanding budget urban outfitter at 122 Delancey, underwent a slight cosmetic change within the last few weeks. Apparently the building owner decided to carve out a thin slice of store real estate to create a new retail footprint. Mo’ money. This division created a space that can’t be much more than 100 square-feet […]

‘Famous Oyster Bar’ Neons Will Soon Grace the Outside of Grey Lady

Posted March 7, 2014 at 6:00 am

Fifty-five years of serving seafood to midtowners concluded at the end of January when Famous Oyster Bar shuttered. The restaurant first opened in 1959, and was run by the same Greek family until owner Angelo Agmonostopoulo died in 2010. Partner Ajit Saha took over thereafter, and held on until the end. But what of that sexy […]
