Fifteen Years on, ‘Bite’ Snack Shop Might Move 2 Doors Down on Lafayette Street

Posted December 7, 2016 at 5:00 am

The narrow spearhead of real estate at the triangular confluence of Bleecker, Lafayette, and Mulberry Streets is undergoing another retail shift. In the year since Pinche Taqueria ended its brief tenure at 333 Lafayette, the tiny space has remained largely dormant. Leasing signage, courtesy of Winick, did make an appearance. However, the glass was predominantly […]

Tapeo29 Ended its 12-Year Run on Clinton Street Last Week

Posted December 6, 2016 at 5:00 am

Spanish tapas standby on Clinton Street, Tapeo29, ended its run on the block last week, capping twelve years in the area. Owner Ofir Yaloz didn’t specify a reason for the closure, noting only that the decision was “personal.” There might be plans for a new restaurant in the future, but no details beyond that nugget […]

Listed: Wassail Cider Bar Might Not Last Much Longer on Orchard Street

Posted November 28, 2016 at 5:00 am

Just a short month after the second annual LES Cider Fest took over upper Orchard Street, one of its biggest proponents (and beneficiaries) might soon close. Indeed, Wassail now has brokers shopping around the space. Real estate listings are peppered about Craigslist and included in Sinvin’s online portfolio. The twenty-month-old business – occupying 2,000 square-feet on […]

Weilgus & Sons Building on East Broadway Hits the Market for $11M

Posted November 2, 2016 at 5:01 am

The eastern fringe of Chinatown is really starting to sell off. Lots of building transactions, hoity-toity galleries, and bar-restaurants. As a result, the area totally resettled, and should succumb to the pressures of hyper-gentrification in short order. Case in point is 158 East Broadway, with Weilgus & Sons on the ground level. The tenement just hit […]

Chefs Club Brings its Fast Casual ‘Counter’ to Former Spring Natural Space

Posted October 31, 2016 at 5:16 am

When Spring Street Natural was forced from its namesake street last year, the subsequent rent hike was essentially an admission that the next tenant would be something more bougie. We learned at the time of their departure from 62 Spring – back in late 2015 – that founding owner-operator Rus Schoenholt faced an expiring lease with a […]

Cursed ‘Lowlife’ Space On Stanton Street Hits the Market Again

Posted October 26, 2016 at 5:04 am

The curse of 178 Stanton Street certainly is alive and well. In the four years prior, three different bar-restaurants tried to make a go of it, all failing in short order. The latest, Lowlife, shuttered back in June after a six month run; it was preceded by the Moldy Fig (d. February 2012) and Stanton Kitchen […]

Languishing on the Market, Another Brokerage Tries to Pitch Retail at the Bowery ‘Bunker’

Posted October 25, 2016 at 9:43 am

Here we are again. A year-and-a-half after the Green Depot vacated 222 Bowery, the former environmentally-concious hardware store remains a decrepit dormancy. Just look inside. There is now a collection of toilet bowls, random bags of concrete, and other construction sundries. But nothing is happening. Except that a new brokerage is trying again to sell […]

145 Ludlow Street Goes Nondo, Pitching a Penthouse at $16.5K

Posted October 25, 2016 at 5:14 am

For the first time in more than a decade, there is a building sitting at 145 Ludlow Street. Not for artists, though. You need some serious coin to live here. The luxury residence was conceived and constructed as condos, but the owner reportedly decided to go rental instead. The marketing copy is quick to remind […]

More than a Year Later, Cooking Gas Finally Restored to 43 Essex Street as Retail Hits the Market

Posted October 24, 2016 at 9:46 am

Things are finally looking up for 43 Essex Street, a Lower East Side tenement whose tenants are struggling with the nascent slumlord. Cooking gas was restored last week after more than year without hookup, making life livable again. The former G&S Sporting Goods, meanwhile, is officially down for the count. Even though the local boxing […]

CoCo Bubble Tea Spot Opens in Last Low-Rise Strip on Delancey Street

Posted October 24, 2016 at 5:18 am

Taj Gold, one of the last jewelry/pawn shops along the Delancey Street corridor, closed back in May. Its store canopy was pried from the building and its windows fully papered. The company had been on the block for more than a decade. And until last week, the space at 156 Delancey was a vacant mess […]
