Posted September 4, 2015 at 5:18 am

The unheralded crepe wars of Hell Square were suddenly neutralized yesterday. For the last couple years, the Pomme creperie squared off against the longstanding Creperie mini-chain across Ludlow Street. We rarely saw anyone grazing in there, but business persevered nevertheless. The end came yesterday evening. Pomme’s last communication occurred via Facebook at around 4pm. Shortly thereafter, […]

Coming Soon: Veda at 132 Ludlow

Posted September 9, 2009 at 6:09 am

Like Lili’s Wink and ItsaSickness before it, 132 Ludlow will soon become yet another boutique – Veda.  Sandwiched between Iggy’s Keltic Lounge and Steve Madden, this leather-leaning shop is apparently (wait for it) a “fashionista’s answer to the Holy Grail search for the perfect leather jacket.”  Perhaps that would explain the creepy neon-lit crucifix above […]
