Posted December 1, 2016 at 5:16 am

Last Tuesday, just before the Thanksgiving break, there was an apparent gas leak at 80 Delancey Street. Con Edison quickly shut off the utility to the building. Residents are pissed, though, mainly due to the purported lack of transparency from management. The building owner of record is the Vintage Group (80 Delancey, LLC), a somewhat lesser-known landlord on […]

Duane Reade Makeover on Delancey Street Uncovers Old ‘Bunnies’ Ghost Signage

Posted November 8, 2016 at 9:29 am

Duane Reade’s long-running Delancey Street outpost is undergoing a slight brand tweak. Even though Walgreens purchased the pharmacy chain years ago, many of the locations (like 100 Delancey) remain without mention of its corporate parent. Until last week. That’s when the faded red-and-white banner on the four-story vertical housing was swapped for signage that reads, […]

Taj Gold, one of the last jewelry/pawn shops along the Delancey Street corridor, closed back in May. Its store canopy was pried from the building and its windows fully papered.

Delancey Street Gets its First LinkNYC Kiosk

Posted October 21, 2016 at 5:10 am

Yesterday afternoon, the city unveiled the first LinkNYC pornhub kiosk for Delancey Street. It’s situated just east of the Bowery, where these things are multiplying faster than gizmo in a swimming pool. The 9-foot-6-inch unit is not yet active, though. LinkNYC stations have been criticized pretty much from the get-go. In league with the soulless […]

Battle for Suffolk Street Hinges on Hank Freid’s Holiday Inn Rooftop Bar

Posted October 18, 2016 at 5:00 am

The proposed rooftop bar at the Holiday Inn on Delancey Street would up the ante on local nightlife, and have a deleterious effect on those living within earshot, worried neighbors argue. The man behind the food-and-beverage tune-up is Hank Freid, a controversial landlord who also operates a similar rooftop venue called Haven near Times Square. […]

In Which Greek Gods Meet the Lower East Side Skyline

Posted October 11, 2016 at 5:08 am

This is what happens when you mix mythos with modern day NYC. Artist Boo Paterson has recently created a unique paper cutout series called “The Greek Gods in New York.” She brings Mt. Olympus and its echelon to the city (via ruler and x-acto knife), by weaving Greek mythology into the fabric of the Lower East […]
