Starr Restaurant Group Bid for Bowery Bunker Steakhouse Doesn’t Look Good

Last modified May 7, 2015 at 8:11 pm

If the new real estate signage in the windows of 222 Bowery is any indication, Starr Restaurant Group may have hit a dead end.

The proposal would […]

Posted April 22, 2015 at 5:10 am

There is some renewed interest in the southeast corner of Ludlow and Grand.

A tattered sign on its semi-permanent plywood boarding has previously advertised the boxy building for sale, but a transaction never happened. […]

Posted April 10, 2015 at 5:00 am

The outdated row of retail comprising 50-62 Clinton Street still stands, but the tombstone signage continues to tease the next phase. As we’ve been reporting, the one-story collection of stores – which had included WD-50 – will fall so that a seven-story condo project can rise here. The price range to live in this beacon of […]

The controversial commercial unit at 106 Rivington Street – an address that lives in infamy – is again in the news. And this time for something way more serious than a liquor license.
