The Stephan Stoyanov Gallery on Orchard Street Has Shuttered

Posted June 30, 2014 at 6:05 am

The gallery district that is lower Orchard Street just lost a popular showroom. Stephan Stoyanov Gallery closed its headquarters at 29 Orchard just a couple weeks ago without much warning. We are told the eponymous owner had been struggling of late. Meanwhile, the security gates are shuttered and a leasing sign tops the storefront. Stoyanov […]

Spur Tree Returns to Orchard Street for Menu Collaboration with Norman’s Cay

Posted June 25, 2014 at 6:09 am

When Spur Tree suddenly closed shop earlier this year, ownership promised patrons that the Jamaican-flavored hangout would return. Another Lower East Side location has proven elusive, though, so Plan B in now in effect. The brand has joined forces with its old neighbor on Orchard Street. We didn’t see this coming. We just received word that […]

Todd’s Mill on Orchard Street Shutters After 2-Year Run; Business Now For Sale

Posted June 25, 2014 at 6:00 am

Barely two years on, Matthew Suchomski’s relative Orchard Street newcomer Todd’s Mill is done for. Closure apparently transpired earlier this month, and very much under the radar. Security gates have been shuttered during all hours. While no signs were placed onsite, ownership assured at least one customer via Twitter that there were some “plumbing issues” […]

See Orchard Street in Trailer for Steven Soderberg’s Cinemax Show ‘The Knick’ [VIDEO]

Posted June 20, 2014 at 6:03 am

For a week in November of last year, Cinemax monopolized Orchard Street, transforming the “museum block” into a turn-of-the-century set for The Knick. We saw dirt and horse-drawn carriages imported, storefronts masqueraded, and period-specific costumes. Now, more than six months later, a second, more rounded-out trailer for the freshman cable series is live. One brief […]

In their place, a new vintage boutique called GeorgiaNYC. Yup, the address is returning to its previous function as clothing purveyor. GeorgiaNYC will […]

Local favorite Cheeky Sandwiches is currently closed. Apparently the Department of Health paid a visit to the cafe yesterday afternoon and wasn’t too happy. If you stop by 35 Orchard Street, an ambiguous announcement apologizes for the inconvenience and promises to “see you soon.” Even though the DOH database shows no reference to this action, owner […]

Fashion Flight: Any Old Iron Moves to Nashville, Synchronicity to Williamsburg

Posted June 12, 2014 at 6:00 am

So-called “fashion flight” continues to plague Hell Square. Two more threads shops just called it quits on the pock-marked stretch just below Houston. Blame that effin Orchard Hell Building (nay, Hotel Indigo) for the boutique woes here. Within the last couple weeks, seemingly in one fell swoop, the neighborhood lost both Any Old Iron and Synchronicity. […]

The NYPD Installs New Trailer Spotlight Outside Leadbelly on Orchard Street

Posted June 11, 2014 at 6:05 am

When it comes to over-saturated Lower East Side nightlife, usually Hell Square hogs headlines. After all, the tiny micro-hood has more bars in three blocks than in most residential areas of the city (i.e. 62 liquor licenses). So it came as a surprise to see the same crowd-control tactics south of Delancey. Like, way south. […]
