Lichtenstein & Co. Moving; Nightlife Replacement?

Posted on: April 14th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

Lichtenstein & Co. is on the move again.  The tailor supply shop is hopping two storefronts at 95 Delancey and landing in the slightly smaller space formerly occupied by A & A Deli.  Contractors have been on scene preparing the space for the last week, and it’s now ready.  Employees already shifted most of the supplies; store signage will likely follow.  This is the third relocation on Delancey within the last decade.  Their longtime headquarters was just down the block at 55 Delancey.

The flight of Lichtenstein unlocks a valuable corner property in notorious landlord Baruch Singer’s building.  Not much has happened here since Triangle Optical moved across the street in 2008.  In fact, their doorway has become something of a latrine for homeless folk and late-night revelers alike.  But all that may change really soon.  We are hearing unconfirmed rumblings of something big opening here in the near future.  Nightlife.  A birdie tells team Boogie that a new bar-club-ish will allegedly occupy three floors, plus rooftop.

The corner of 95 Delancey was last considered for bar space by Rivington Wine and Cheese back in December 2009.  Whatever that was.
