NOFX – “The Brews”
In an about-face, the city announced yesterday that at least fifteen public pools will reopen across the Five Boroughs. Included in the lucky list is the Hamilton Fish Park pool, known to locals as the “Pitt Pool.” But the cooldown will have to wait another month. The reopenings are scheduled for August 1, and are […]
Cocoa Bar closed its doors for the last time during the coronavirus shutdown. The Lower East Side offshoot of the Brooklyn original is now another statistic for businesses lost during the pandemic. The casual cafe and wine bar – heavy on the chocolate – spent thirteen years serving from its perch at 21 Clinton Street. Tombstone […]
Saturday afternoon, dozens of preservationists gathered outside 70 Mulberry Street to protest the demolition of a Chinatown relic. The former public school building that has served as a beacon of neighborhood nonprofits for decades. More than one hundred people congregated outside the fire-stricken structure. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams also showed his support for the […]
Rivington House is a trash-strewn mess, and it doesn’t appear that the Mount Sinai overlords care about cleanup. At the outset of the COVID-19 lockdown, the future Behavioral Health facility erected a plywood shed to help repel the homeless that tend to loiter and sleep at the doorway. Activity that has transpired on the spot […]
One of the most popular, albeit low key, restaurants on the Lower East Side is set to close next month. Gaia Italian Cafe, which has kept the neighborhood in cozy home-cooked, will close at the end of July. The forthcoming closure caps a nine-and-a-half-year run on East Houston Street. We’re told that the landlord decided […]
Now a week into Phase 2 reopening, and on the precipice of Phase 3, it would appear much of the local populace is back to normal habit. Just look to this past weekend on Orchard Street just north of Canal, where block parties reigned uninterrupted. Boys Don’t Cry pulled together a Friday evening soirée, with […]
Early Sunday morning, the street opened up and swallowed an SUV on the Lower East Side. The roadbed on East Second Street – just west of Avenue A – sunk into oblivion shortly after midnight. Taking away a parking space and its vehicle. Firefighters and cops responded, and the truck was eventually excised from the […]
A turf war is brewing in the SoHo art world. To wit, who owns the art of rebellion that ensconced the commercial plywood in the aftermath of protests and looting? SoHo looked like a toy town in pristine condition during most of the Covid-19 shutdown. For many residents, the minimalist sense of calm harkened back […]
Extell’s “affordable” residential complex on Cherry Street altered its illegal dumping habits in response to neighbor outcry and media coverage. Indeed, it all changed after the story ran on Bowery Boogie. For the last three months, up until this week, the super of 227 Cherry Street had been stashing refuse in a makeshift curbside corral […]
Team La Flaca, licking its wounds from an alleged rent hike on Grand Street, is pivoting to a different project altogether. Albeit unrelated. Seemingly out of nowhere comes the Secret Garden, a rear yard cafe experience at 84 Clinton Street. Few details are available at the moment, but the new venture is slated to begin a […]
