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.

The East Broadway subway station wasn’t always a shady dungeon attracting crime. Once upon a time, the transit stop inspired celebrations across the Lower East Side. It was exactly eighty-five years ago – January 1, 1936 – that the East Broadway subway station debuted to the public. The feat of subterranean engineering, then known as […]
Well, that was quick. With Libation excised from the Lower East Side, the hole is now filled. Taken over by Ludlow House. The building at 137 Ludlow Street was demolished last year, and replaced in a matter of months. In fact, it’s already operational. The architecture of this one-story newcomer mirrors design elements of its […]
City Comptroller (and mayoral candidate) Scott Stringer held a press conference yesterday at the Chinatown kiosk on Canal Street, announcing a plan to funnel federal Payroll Protection (PPP) dollars to New York city businesses. It certainly triggered an uncomfortable memory of last year’s PPP fiasco. The first round of PPP went into effect just a […]
Tuesday night’s Town Hall on Open Restaurants and Open Streets, hosted by Community Boards 3 and 6 – left residents with more questions than answers regarding the long-term impact these pandemic-era health and economic neighborhood solutions have on a post-COVID city. However, the online meetup did bring a wide scope of information in terms of […]
The leasing banner has been strung from the facade of 241 Bowery for more than two years. Without much success. The second and third floors (combined 8,938 square-feet) – once part of the Sunshine Hotel flophouse – are again on the market. And at a hefty price: $6,495 for a “raw” space that requires renovations […]
Bluestockings Bookstore announced last week that its three-months-running crowdfunding campaign was a success, allowing the Lower East Side literary stalwart to realize its relocation. Over the summer, the first such fundraiser helped the so-called feminist bookstore foot the bill for the lease on 116 Suffolk Street after a pandemic rent hike at the original spot. […]
One less pizzeria for Hell Square. Little Gio’s Pizza recently closed down its Orchard Street annex. Token butcher paper in the windows signals the end of this road. The expansion outpost of the First Avenue pizzeria lasted about a year. It replaced the locals favorite, Georgia’s Eastside BBQ, which shuttered in May 2018 thanks to […]
The Sunshine Cinema couldn’t be further down the horizon. Especially as each steel beam is knocked into place. Progress on the new office building at 143 East Houston Street is certainly visible now. Its skeleton recently reached the halfway mark, as it climbs to a total height of about nine stories. As previously reported, owners […]
It appears that Extell needs more money to operate 227 Cherry Street. Wavecrest Management, which oversees this affordable building in the shadow of One Manhattan Square, circulated a letter to tenants that Wells Fargo bank will be on-premise tomorrow for a “lender site inspection.” So, it would appear that Extell seeks another loan for this […]
Opening a new business is always risky but opening in the middle of a pandemic takes “cojones.” And that’s exactly what three Chinatown entrepreneurs did. Recall that the economic devastation in Chinatown already dates back one year. The onset of Covid-19 overseas caused sharp declines in revenue for most businesses already struggling to survive on […]
