Posted February 12, 2015 at 5:11 am

The Lower East Side welcomed the Bruffin to its shores back in October. Headquartered in the ground level of The Yard, Bruffin Cafe had heretofore offered its signature creation – a cut muffin that’s stuffed like a sandwich and based on international cuisine. “Meal in a muffin” is their tagline. Four months later, however, the […]

Sneak Jeans on Delancey Closes Ahead of Possible Sale and Redevelopment

Posted February 9, 2015 at 5:11 am

That FDNY tire explosion outside Sneak Jeans on Delancey Street was an omen of sorts. A few pedestrians were injured and the front windows shattered from the shockwave. Now, five months after the incident, the nearly-thirty-year-old threads shop is finished for good. Curtains. Handwritten signs plastered to the storefront indicate that yesterday was the final day […]

James Fuentes’ Newly Expanded Gallery on Delancey is a Graffiti Magnet

Posted February 6, 2015 at 5:19 am

Delancey Street is an unlikely place for galleries. It’s loud, polluted, and known more for utilitarian business. Tell that to James Fuentes. His eponymous gallery just doubled in size shortly before the new year. Its re-inauguration transpired back in November when the sidewalk shed was carted away. Sheathed in ten-plus feet of faux-brick, the new […]

Posted January 29, 2015 at 5:00 am

Damn, that was quick. A month after Marly Building Supply dismantled its Delancey facility and vacated the Lower East Side, a noob is ready to take the torch.

Goa-Taco Extends its Residency on Delancey Through the End of February

Posted January 20, 2015 at 5:18 am

Business is bustling at the nascent Goa-Taco pop-up dispensary on Delancey Street. The tiny lunch counter beside Grey Lady – specializing in Indian-infused “paratha tacos” – has been busy since its debut in mid-December. And apparently it’s been going well enough to extend the residency. “The pop-up has been going great and we have had […]
