Here’s the New Logan Hicks Mural Outside the Burger King on Suffolk Street

Posted May 21, 2014 at 6:08 am

After a few days of prep and paint, Logan Hicks completed his latest Lower East Side mural at the end of last week. The Suffolk Street facade of Burger King now carries the silhouette of a woman in white against patterned blue backdrop. The Little Italy Street Art Project was instrumental in tapping Hicks for […]

Lady of Grand’s Pick: Subject’s Gin + Lavender Tonic

Posted May 8, 2014 at 11:00 am

Subject’s Suffolk Street drinking den is still under the radar for many people in the neighborhood. Their Gin + Lavender tonic made with Damrak Amsterdam Gin, Lime, and housemade Lavender tonic is one of those drinks I will be sipping now that it’s spring time. Every bitter, infusion, tincture, and tonic is made there without […]

Rothko Retail on Suffolk Street Now ‘SHNY’ Creative Space

Posted March 17, 2014 at 6:05 am

Rather surprising that the old Rothko building at 116 Suffolk Street found a ground level tenant so damn quickly. Well, relatively, of course.  It was late September when Organic Avenue decided to jet from its neighborhood birthplace. This was its home for four years, after relocating from 101 Stanton in 2009. Now, it’s another gallery-slash-exhibition […]

Chicago Street Artist ‘Don’t Fret’ Wheat-Pastes the Lower East Side

Posted March 10, 2014 at 10:30 am

  Chicago-based street artist Don’t Fret is in town, and he’s surely making himself known (just don’t call him Shirley). He apparently spent the weekend pasting several Lower East Side walls with various comedic characters and goofy musings. We spotted pieces from Freeman Alley all the way to Division Street in Chinatown. Some of the […]

Queen Andrea Brings Converse Color Burst to Streit’s Matzo Factory

Posted March 3, 2014 at 11:37 am

The Suffolk Street facade of Streit’s Matzo factory is a consistent target for taggers and vandals. It’s an expansive wall-canvas with no windows. But the decades-old stalwart recently decided to pimp a piece of the exterior for some advertising dough (pun intended). Late last week, street artist Queen Andrea painted yet another colorful mural as […]

Revisiting the Stalled Project Site at 265 East Houston

Posted December 3, 2013 at 6:10 am

Mandatory DOB poster rendering, freshly-painted plywood, and a contractor bilging water from deep within the project site. These are all surefire signs pointing to a resumption of construction activities at the southwest corner of Houston and Suffolk Street. For those who don’t recall, this future ten-story development is already more than three years in the making. Ever […]

Organic Avenue Ditches 116 Suffolk Street

Posted September 26, 2013 at 6:08 am

From humble beginnings to city domination, Organic Avenue is on the up-and-up, constantly expanding. In fact, its ascension to health stratosphere is the reasoning behind its departure from the Space of Love at 116 Suffolk Street. It had operated here in the Rothko building for almost four years. A Boogie reader informed us that the […]
