The Lower East Side now has the privilege of Privilege. The Brooklyn-based urban lifestyle boutique just opened a pop-up shop at 155 Suffolk Street. It’s a two-week retail collaboration that includes various choices of apparel, footwear, and skate goods.
The five-year-old brand will continue selling at 155 Suffolk Street through July 3. Thereafter, you’ll need to shop online or head out to Greenpoint.
Lower East Side resident, and COVID-19 survivor, Jill Fiore, continued the Fiore Escape concert concept with a second show on her Essex Street fire escape. Fiore spent this past Saturday evening performing from the second-floor fire escape of her walkup (above Delancey Car Service). It was the second such performance – behind the show on […]
The transition is complete. More than a year into its tenancy at 175 Clinton Street, Metro Acres is now at home. In other words, store signage is finally in place, with nary a sign of Fine Fare. The changeover had been gradual since Metro took over, to say the least. First with repositioning (and upscaling) […]
With Rosario’s Pizza now a proverbial footnote, its successor is now in play. Zazzy’s Pizza is now serving on Orchard Street, albeit in soft launch mode for the last couple weeks. For starters, the health-conscious pizzeria (there are plant-based vegan options) is open for dinner service, 5pm-10pm daily. The takeout window at 173 Orchard is […]
The long-shuttered Miss Paradis restaurant has been an eyesore of Little Italy since before the pandemic. This ill-fated eatery, which rose on a corner parking lot across from Old St. Patrick’s, closed its doors in 2018 after only a year in business (and four prior years of planning). Its gleaming rooftop apple did not live […]
In which Mediterranean cuisine joins forces with natural wine on Broome Street. As of today, Sami & Susu – the Williamsburg Mediterranean restaurant that launched earlier this year – is setting up shop inside popular twelve-year-old wine bar, Ten Bells (247 Broome Street). The focus is a spin on traditional and family-inspired fare, with the […]
Here is the first look inside the newer, larger Scarr’s Pizza on Orchard Street. As previously reported, owner Scarr Pimentel applied to remove and transfer the liquor license to 35 Orchard (aka 34 Allen) in what was formerly the Lam & Associates insurance office. (A building now shared with Cheeky Sandwiches.) Community Board 3 signaled […]
In the spiritual home of pickles, it’s the marriage of books and brine on the Lower East Side. Indeed, a new small business called Sweet Pickle Books just opened at 47 Orchard Street. The newcomer, as previously reported, is a secondhand store offering customers “used books, new pickles.” As well as vinyl records and assorted […]
City Council voted to redevelop Elizabeth Street Garden in favor of the Haven Green affordable, senior housing mixed-use project last year, but two lawsuits filed prior to that determination are only now circulating the court system. Yesterday, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Debra James heard oral arguments from both legal teams as well as and the city’s […]
Related Companies finalized a deal this week to acquire two Section 8 affordable housing properties on the Lower East Side waterfront. The $435 million transaction for Lands End II at 265-275 Cherry Street, first reported by the Real Deal, is touted as one of the largest multifamily deals to go through since the outset of […]
That Witch Ales You is a new microbrewery that just debuted in Chinatown. Already more than six years in the making, the pun-heavy establishment finally opened its doors at 116 Madison Street last month. Instead of barber chairs and hair curlers, it’s now vats of suds. Roughly the size of a cramped studio apartment, That […]
