It seems that longtime Lower East Side exterminators, M&M Environmental, might need to start looking for new office space. A real estate listing hit the market yesterday that pimps 32 Orchard Street as a great “investment opportunity.” Enough to justify the asking price of $8 million by current owner, Staten Island-based Stormcat Realty LLC.

‘LESpace’ Pop-Up Incubator at Los Perros Locos is Donezo

Posted September 2, 2015 at 5:10 am

It was exactly a year ago that Alex Mitow pulled the plug on the short-lived Los Perros Locos at 201 Allen Street.

Two years into its tenancy, Amuse Wine Bar is seemingly on the outs. It’s further proof that 121 Ludlow Street is a cursed address. A real estate listing appeared on Monday hawking the 1,800 square-foot wine bar as a “prime LES” opportunity. Based on the post, it’s apparent that these guys signed an unfavorable deal. […]
