Eisner Bros. at 75 Essex Doubles Down on Driveway Security with Towering Fences

Posted December 9, 2015 at 5:12 am

Eisner Bros. has gone full-on DEFCON 5. Apparently, neither Saturn SUV nor locked crowd control barricade could deter trespassers from gaining entrance to the L-shaped alleyway behind 75 Essex Street. So, owner Shalom Eisner completely upped the ante last month. He’s most definitely not fucking around. An enormous, ten-foot fence system is now in place at […]

Seriously, Eisner Bros. Doesn’t Want You Cutting Through their Driveway on Essex Street

Posted September 15, 2015 at 5:10 am

Eisner Bros. really means it, now. Stop using their L-shaped driveway as a shortcut between Ludlow and Essex Streets. As of this month, the owner of 75 Essex has taken additional measures to secure the area. Guess the parked jalopy wasn’t good enough. Just a few weeks after the Saturn SUV was parked here, a […]

Eisner Brothers Really Doesn’t Want You Cutting Through the Driveway on Essex Street

Posted August 21, 2015 at 9:33 am

This bombed-out Saturn jalopy is parked beside the freestanding 75 Essex Street (Eisner Brothers) with the distinct purpose of deterrence. Deterrence against those pedestrians deprived of the old parking lot shortcut, and who would otherwise use the L-shaped alleyway as an alternative. The dead giveaway here is the lack of license plates and the rash […]

The big neighborhood news of late is the drop-load of renderings for Phase 1 of the Essex Crossing mega-project. Just like that, ten Lower East Side parcels, some previously vacant, will be completely redeveloped in the next decade.

Email Reveals Probable Expansion of Essex Crossing to Include Eastern Dispensary Building at 75 Essex [EXCLUSIVE]

Posted March 20, 2014 at 5:55 am

Despite recent news to the contrary, Taconic Partners (or, more likely, one of its subsidiaries) is very much still interested in purchasing the Eastern Dispensary building at 75 Essex Street, as we first reported. We now have what appears to be smoking gun evidence that an expansion of Essex Crossing is on the table, but […]

Cell phone robberies are seemingly on the rise of late. A tipster tells us that early yesterday morning, two male Hispanics allegedly snatched a woman’s cell phone outside 123 Rivington Street (Welcome to the Johnson’s). Apparently plainclothes officers in an undercover cab witnessed the scene, while the woman screamed “give me my phone.” Cops tackled […]

The home of Eisner Brothers on Essex Street has fallen prey to some guerrilla promo for the new Belle & Sebastian record, Write About Love.  The album title is chalked in rainbow colors on the rear brick facade of 75 Essex Street, facing the municipal parking lot.

Siegel, an educator at the Tenement Museum, provided an excerpt of the exclusive story, including an interview with owner Shalom Eisner. Shalom Eisner grew up in Williamsburg and in 1977 rented […]
