Posted August 3, 2015 at 5:13 am

Almost a year later, the old Tammany Hall is ready for rebirth. Before you know it, the drunken hordes on Orchard Street will resume screaming about being a “small town girl living in a lonely world” who’s livin’ on a prayer … or some shit. Booting your sanity until morning. In other words, the second outpost […]

New Tree Guards Installed Along the Length of Orchard Street

Posted July 31, 2015 at 5:07 am

More beautification for Orchard Street this week. Flatbed trucks were spotted delivering iron tree guards to the sidewalks of Orchard Street this week. Installation began on the northern terminus and is slowly headed southward. The ornate guards now act as deterrent to tree-bound bike locks and dog droppings. The landscape revitalization goes hand-in-hand with overall […]

At 96 Orchard Street, one salon begets another… The first floor landing of 96 Orchard Street is no stranger to hair salons.

Former Sixth Ward on Orchard Street is Leasing, Illegal Backyard Promised

Last modified July 22, 2015 at 11:43 am

It was only a matter of time. Three months after its free-fall to failure, the dormant Sixth Ward space at 191 Orchard Street is now for rent.

Dudley’s on Orchard Street is Expanding Next Door with Take-Away Window Service

Posted July 13, 2015 at 5:00 am

The old Guss’ Pickles hovel at 87 Orchard Street will return to food use after a half-decade foray into tobacco peddling. You’ll recall that Maraya Cigars quietly faded from the block three months ago without much in the way of announcements to fans. Few seemed to mourn the indie business, though. Now the tiny space is […]

It’s the second time inside a year that the restaurant closed with little warning, and for an extended hiatus. Ochado took to Twitter in mid-May […]
