Big Apple Boxes Reopens with New Name at 34 Ludlow Street

Posted January 27, 2016 at 10:13 am

​Big Apple Boxes lives, albeit with new name and location. You’ll recall that the business vacated 41 Essex Street back in August. Quietly folding. A new smoke-shop-slash-bodega opened in its stead. But Big Apple Box eventually found a new home right around the corner at 34 Ludlow Street. A much bigger location, at that. They […]

Sweet Chick Principal Launching Cafe-Barbershop Combo in Former Pink Pony Space on Ludlow Street

Posted January 20, 2016 at 5:00 am

Where Pink Pony heretofore ruled, Sweet Chick will reportedly have another. Well, kind of. Celebrity Chef Julieta Ballesteros – owner of Crema on West 17th Street – briefly flirted with the idea of opening a place at 176 Ludlow Street last summer, but apparently got cold feet. Despite a fast-track beer-wine approval from Community Board […]

36 Ludlow Street is an Illicit After-Hours Speakeasy, Neighbors Allege

Last modified January 20, 2016 at 10:32 pm

The narrow shop at 36 Ludlow Street is an unlikely place for an illicit after-hours club, but that’s precisely what neighbors claim is happening. Heretofore a dusty dumping ground, the former Chinese food distributor (Kong Yik Co) had become somewhat of a storage bin in recent years. Not until last spring did real movement kickstart […]
