As Tokyobike Bids Farewell to the Bowery, ‘The 5TH’ Plans Pop-Up

Last modified November 16, 2017 at 9:24 am

Tokyobike’sbrief flirtation with the Bowery came to an end late last month. Seemingly without warning, the store closed down, with brown window shades taking up residence. We are told that Tokyobike closed the Bowery outpost for the season, and will reopen “elsewhere” come springtime. Location is TBD. In the meantime, though, Australian-based fashion brand, The […]

‘The Turf’ Pop-Up Hits the Bowery for Weeklong Residency

Posted September 15, 2017 at 5:11 am

When Chair Up was forced from its seventeen-year perch on the Bowery, an enormous space was liberated for the taking. The first suitor to do so was Spanish kicks company, Camper, which opened a branded “Lab” here last April. The other half of 219-221 Bowery, however, remained dormant until now. In comes something called The […]

Online Retailer ‘JCRT’ Launches Plaid Pop-up to the Bowery

Posted September 19, 2016 at 5:12 am

After nearly a year of vacancy, 350 Bowery is apparently paying the bills as a haven for pop-ups. First with garage rock revival and now Paul Bunyan plaid. Four months ago, The Strokes hosted a week-long merch shop at 352 Bowery as promotion for its GovBall performance and newest album, Future Present Past. Now, though, with festival season […]

Rat Castle Retail Goes with Rising States Pop-Up on Ludlow Street

Posted April 18, 2016 at 5:10 am

The Ludlow Street Rat Castle may have filled its residential ranks, but the retail space remains a vacant white box. Likely the all-too-familiar tactic of warehousing for the highest bidder. Steven Sutton, the broker who’s repping the space (Sutton Equity LLC), told us back in August that there was “serious interest” in the commercial condo […]

Parasol Projects Opening Another Pop-Up Space on the Bowery (aka ‘New Chelsea)

Posted March 28, 2016 at 5:10 am

For the first time in recent memory, restaurant supply is not the modus operandi of 208 Bowery. Its primary commercial tenant the last several years has been Yasakart, which also incorporated the adjacent store into its footprint. (There had been some eviction drama with this tenant back in 2010.) The business downsized last month – […]

‘Theory of Gaia’ Boutique Pops Up at 174 Ludlow Street

Posted March 3, 2016 at 5:14 am

Ever since Daredevil Tattoo was forced southward from its longtime perch three years ago, the landlord of 174 Ludlow Street (Arwen Equities) has been content with warehousing and turnover. Naturally. That’s the nature of the business when you allegedly increase the rent some fifty percent. It took more than a year before a retail replacement moved […]
