Legendary Songwriter Leonard Cohen is Dead at 82

Posted November 11, 2016 at 5:19 am

In a year where we’ve already seen the loss of David Bowie, Prince and Glenn Frey, among others, the dreaded 2016 takes another legend. Poet, novelist, and songwriter Leonard Cohen died yesterday at the age of 82. The news was announced last night via his Facebook fan page. We figured this was an appropriate time to […]

Nike Pissed off the Lower East Side and SoHo Communities in the Same Day

Posted November 11, 2016 at 5:00 am

It’s quite ironic that yesterday, within just a few hours, Nike was both feted and lambasted by our local government. Mere blocks from each other. While the Parks Department channeled its gratitude (i.e. kissed the ring) toward Nike for resurfacing the Stanton Street basketball courts with designs by street artist KAWS, City Council rallied to […]

Nike Taps KAWS to Repaint Stanton Street Basketball Courts

Posted November 10, 2016 at 5:00 am

Nike is embedded pretty deep on Stanton Street in Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Its cash infusions over the years have helped both the soccer field (despite past turf problems) and basketball courts become some of the most heavily used in the area. And as of yesterday evening, the latter is latest to get a makeover. […]

Cursed ‘Lowlife’ Space On Stanton Street Hits the Market Again

Posted October 26, 2016 at 5:04 am

The curse of 178 Stanton Street certainly is alive and well. In the four years prior, three different bar-restaurants tried to make a go of it, all failing in short order. The latest, Lowlife, shuttered back in June after a six month run; it was preceded by the Moldy Fig (d. February 2012) and Stanton Kitchen […]

For the Old Silver Monuments on Stanton Street, a Temporary Touch of Clairvoyance

Posted August 24, 2016 at 5:11 am

From death to clairvoyance. Having suffered exactly one year of dormancy, the former Silver Monuments tombstone shop on Stanton Street returns to life. Albeit as a fake psychic shop for a scene in Blue Bloods. The neon sign arrived in the windows of 125 Stanton Street Monday afternoon, throwing several readers for a loop. How could […]

‘Ma Non Troppo’ Women’s Boutique Relocates to Former Macaron Shop on Stanton Street

Posted August 19, 2016 at 5:00 am

Clinton Street proved futile for Ma Non Troppo, so it’s on a westward march. Fleeing an address known for its retail turnover. Indeed, the trendy women’s boutique packed its bags earlier this month after less than a year in business, and will soon reopen at 101 Stanton Street. Signs at the new location promise an opening […]

Over the weekend, a Queens man was arrested for attempting to rape a 21-year-old woman who had passed out on a Stanton Street sidewalk last week. Sean Walker, 45, was collared by police in the 9th Precinct Friday morning, shortly after surveillance images were released to the public. Someone recognized him and alerted the authorities. The […]

With ‘Li-Li’s’ Bar Donezo, Vegan Fashion Brand ‘Vaute NYC’ Moves to 114 Stanton Street

Posted July 21, 2016 at 5:06 am

As nightlife dries up on part of Stanton Street, fashion takes hold. Li-Li’s deubted at 112 Stanton Street back in December. It wasn’t really on anyone’s radar, which is probably why it’s now down for the count. This so-called restaurant dedicated to French fusion fare hasn’t been open for consecutive months. The security gates firmly in […]

RISE Coffee Expands Hours in Stanton Street Kiosk

Posted July 15, 2016 at 5:13 am

Open for about six months, that RISE Coffee counter on Stanton Street we told you about is extending its hours. The pop-up cafe launched in the sidecar takeout space beside A. Turen back in January, just in time for tundra temperatures. But scope was limited. Those barn-door windows at 85 Stanton rarely seemed open, even during the […]

Store no More: It’s Time to Reactivate ‘Stanton Building’ in Sara D. Roosevelt Park, Locals Say

Posted July 6, 2016 at 5:10 am

For decades, the city has hogged the so-called “Stanton Building” situated at the trail head of Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Its current use is Parks Department storage and de-facto parking lot for city vehicles. Since 1994, though, the eponymous Sara D. Roosevelt Park Coalition has fought to reactivate this structure for community accessibility. Efforts to […]
