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 […]

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 […]

After Years of Harassment, SMA Equities Pimps ‘Penthouse’ Offering at 113 Stanton for $8K

Posted June 29, 2016 at 5:11 am

This is the epilogue of a well-tread story about how rent regulated tenants are exploited for the future value of gentry. Same old shit for the one and only Mr. Samy Mahfar. SMA Equities purchased 113 Stanton Street back in 2014, and spent the ensuing two years renovating the upstairs units and roof. All at […]

Rumor: Epstein’s Bar Might Reopen in September, Allegedly with Help from CB3 Chair Nominee

Posted June 14, 2016 at 9:25 am

For nine months the northeast corner of Allen and Stanton Streets has been quiet. Devoid of the rowdy crowds the neighborhood had become accustomed to. Relish the relative peace because it could change pretty soon. After all, there is a reason why Epstein’s Bar hasn’t removed any of its furnishings and the like from the […]

‘Lowlife’ Fails After Six Months on Stanton Street

Posted June 1, 2016 at 5:17 am

It’s safe to say that 178 Stanton Street is now on the list of Lower East side cursed spaces. Lowlife, the concept-driven establishment based loosely on the book of same name by Luc Sante, unexpectedly shuttered on Friday after a paltry six months in business. Just as everyone was leaving town for the holiday. The […]
