‘Simply Hooked’ is One Inspection from Clinton Street Launch

Posted March 20, 2017 at 5:00 am

Simply Hooked is simply one inspection from its maiden voyage. The Clinton Street fish-and-chips joint peeled away the white butcher paper from its windows not too long ago, and instead replaced with artwork of whales and sea life from students in the New Amsterdam School (62 Avenue B). Behind that veneer, the operation is basically ready […]

That new fish & chips joint on Clinton Street now has its identity. Dubbed Simply Hooked, it will offer “sustainable seafood.” The city issued building permits for the space last month, but the teaser signage didn’t arrive in the windows of 47 Clinton Street until earlier this week. What we do know is that five-table snack shop is […]

Icon Realty Picks up Elizabeth Street Tenement that Martin Scorsese and Debbie Harry Backed for Landmarking

Posted August 25, 2016 at 5:00 am

Hated landlord Icon Realty just picked up a tenement building on Elizabeth Street in Little Italy. A property that tenants have been trying to landmark for the last several months, and with support of Debbie Harry and Martin Scorsese. So, definitely bad news on both fronts: for tenants and the preservation. The transaction is not […]

Retail Warehousing at Icon Realty’s 47 Clinton Street Ends with New Salon and Fish-and-Chips Spot

Posted August 8, 2016 at 5:17 am

Icon Realty is finally plugging the void of its commercial base at 47 Clinton Street. The much-maligned landlord purchased the tenement property in September 2014 just as it unloaded the low/rise strip across the street, leading to the seven-story condo at 50 Clinton. The controversial landlord booted the laundromat and financial services store, then warehoused both […]

Icon Realty Principal Faces Potential Criminal Charges for ‘False Filings’ at DOB

Last modified June 15, 2016 at 9:35 am

Icon Realty is often considered one of the more reviled landlords citywide. It’s another example following the trend of multimillion-dollar acquisitions followed by tenant harassment. And now, finally, some discipline. The Department of Buildings recently charged Icon co-owner Terrence Lowenberg for false filings on a construction permit for 56 West 11th Street. Hearing on the matter […]

Life Inside an Icon Realty Building is a Living Hell [PHOTOS]

​It’s sad, really. The habits of a select few slumlords are so ingrained in the East Village/Lower East Side that we could easily draw up a template post and just plug-and-play the du jour offender. Mahfar, Croman, Shaoul, Baruch Singer, Icon Realty – they’re all one and the same, really, and usually employ identical techniques […]

At 3 Stories, 50 Clinton Street Luxury Condo Usurps Public Park Space

Posted February 22, 2016 at 5:17 am

Rise up. That’s the mantra of 50 Clinton Street. Literally. The superstructure sprouted from its enormous seven-parcel footprint within the last couple weeks and now sits at a hefty three-story height. It took awhile to get to this point, though. Developer DHA Capital stumbled through several delays and stop-work orders. Upon completion, though, they’ll be […]
