Community Board 3 just published the SLA subcommittee agenda for April. Lots happening on the Lower East Side these days. Here we go…
- First, Soho House decided to withdraw its liquor license application before the list was even made public. Reasoning is reportedly additional outreach in the face of increased community opposition.
- Rob Shamlian is returning to CB3 to argue for an alteration to include a basement liquor license at the forthcoming Tiny Fork on Orchard Street. You’ll recall that he withdrew the application in the face of community pressure the last go-round.
- Looks like a pool hall is primed for the old Sleepy’s space at 250 East Houston (which itself moved into the Blockbuster spot). This after Soho Billiards shuttered in December. They’re seeking full liquor.
- The Living Room is back on the agenda after a withdrawing last month.
- The nearly-completed Marriott Fairfield Inn at 95 Henry wants full liquor, presumably for its hotel bar.

Nevermind the pandemic at the doorstep, more development must happen on the Lower East Side. New construction permits were filed this week for a twelve-story mid-block development directly across from the International School of Photography. The property in question is 89-91 Ludlow Street, two parcels which last year changed hands for $12.3 million. The filing […]
Chinatown, and the city at large, is increasingly becoming a ghost town, devoid of pedestrians and traffic. Yet, despite the COVID-19 shutdown, work continues at the former PS23, where a devastating five-alarm fire gutted its top floors in January. The project site is apparently considered an emergency, and granted an exception to Governor Cuomo’s executive […]
Good news for the Lower East Side. Starting today, locals can get tested for the novel coronavirus. According to an update yesterday from U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney, New York City Health and Hospitals is opening a COVID-19 assessment and testing center outside Gouverneur Hospital on Madison Street. Physicians will assess patients and determine whether further […]
GrandLo Cafe won’t survive Covid-19. The two-year-old operation announced it’s permanently shuttering. The Grand Street Settlement’s social enterprise program at 178 Broome might be down, but they’re not entirely out. GrandLo has committed to completing their training program remotely, to keep trainees on their career pathway. There are also plans in the works to reoccupy the […]
With the absence of live performances on the music landscape, bands are taking to the internet to help music fans fill their gig going void. That being said, Seattle radio station KEXP is compiling an ongoing events calendar of virtual performances from artists all over the globe. From the KEXP website: With music festivals being […]
It’s probably not the most opportune time to enforce a residential vacate order, yet nevertheless, the hammer falls. Yesterday afternoon, the city mobilized to 276 Grand Street, where the landlord is accused of creating “illegal apartments” on the fourth (6R) and fifth floors (8R) by subdividing the units. These conversions created potentially dangerous conditions that […]
Festival fans take note: this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival is officially canceled (and with it, your summer – thanks, Covid-19!). With the current state of things, it’s not all that shocking, but still stings. After all, this was to be the tenth iteration of the festival, and they pulled some pretty big names for […]
Popular local Italian joint, Sauce Restaurant, is donating hundreds of pizza pies to hospitals around New York City. It all started when a nurse from an unidentified hospital called to order a pizza. She reportedly expressed that staff was working long shifts caring for COVID-19 intake, and not eating enough. And that most restaurants were […]
It’s a full court press. The city is trying to deter people who continue to congregate for group activity in local parks. Specifically, the basketball courts, which have seen a relative surge in players flouting the “social distancing” mandate during the COVID-19 shutdown. “There will not be any basketball games because there will not be […]
While I may survive the COVID-19 pandemic, some of my friendships won’t. As xenophobia grips the masses, racist attacks and harassment against Asians are on the rise at home and abroad. While many would condemn attacks or harassment on social media platforms, how many would intervene when it involves friends? Sadly, my guess is probably not […]
