With Civilianaire’s Failure, It’s a ‘2nd Time Around’ for 53 East Houston Street

Posted July 23, 2015 at 5:12 am

It was barely a comeback at all; a brief rebound, if anything. And now, the two-year-old Civilianaire at 53 East Houston Street is officially dead in the water. For real this time. In its place, something that looks exactly the same – 2nd Time Around. Signage arrived last week, as did a platoon of trendy mannequins. […]

Posted June 23, 2015 at 5:12 am

The proverbial road to recovery in the wake of the Second Avenue Blast has been a struggle for Enz’s Rockabilly Store. While not in one of the collapsed tenements, the business was nevertheless affected, spending some two months in exile.

‘Miss Hoe’ Opens Another Pop-Up Boutique at 26 Canal Street

Posted June 3, 2015 at 5:10 am

Ever since Miss Hoe departed 2 Prince Street last June, the boutique has been livin’ like a refugee. It relocated to 11 Kenmare Street (aka 176 Bowery) three months later, maintaining a pop-up presence in the interim. Even after the notorious Thor Equities snapped up the building in early May for $10.2 million. Now, a southerly […]
