Last week, a Boogie reader sent along intel that a couple of “Williamsburg types” were sniffing around 26 Canal Street (corner of Rutgers). Presumably for some sort of new nightlife endeavor. After all, the time is ripe, as the cornershop was recently vacated by pop-up boutique Miss Hoe and this particular area continues to blow up.
Well, the pieces are now coming together.
As it turns out, yes, a new establishment is in the works here. Something called “Little Canal” is on the way. On paper, it would appear as a coffee shop, but not quite. Booze of the beer and wine variety is sought, and applicants will appear before Community Board 3 next month for the pleasure. According to the application on file, the business is owned by sole proprietor Jereme Barnas (a local), and will feature a menu of “breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, salads, and dinner (American/Italian).”
Plans call for seven tables, fourteen seats, and ten barstools (around a fifteen-foot bar). Little Canal will be open 7am-midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 7am-2am on the weekend. This one probably won’t go over too well with the locals, especially the SPaCE Block Association.
It’s believed that the two ground-floor spaces comprising 26 Canal will be combined to create Little Canal. Indeed, the Daylight Grocery Store recently moved around the corner to East Broadway, which was the former stomping ground of JJ Brine and his satanist Vector Gallery.
It’s worth noting that this corner real estate had previously housed an eatery – the Shinelane Cafe.
Meanwhile, permits for the $100K job are already approved with the Department of Buildings.
As the nation’s coronavirus death toll exceeds 400,000, news of mass vaccination sites opening across New York city is certainly welcome. However, securing an appointment is proving a daunting task. The mayor previously stressed equity in treatment for vaccination, which is rolled out in phases. Yet, with the mandate that all appointments require online registration, […]
The State Liquor Authority wielded its hammer last weekend, summarily suspending the liquor license of Dudley’s on Orchard Street. At issue was the sprawling street eatery constructed by the business, which wraps the corner of Broome Street. Inspectors paid a visit on January 15, and witnessed forty-five patrons “dining within inside enclosures located on the […]
In this installment of Clayton’s Corner, photographer Clayton Patterson shares news that the Overthrow boxing gym on Bleecker Street is back in action. Then, crosstown on Essex Street, two cops stopped for a quick slice. However, flouting traffic by driving the wrong way to park in front of Champion Pizza. This move seemed to irk […]
The following guest post was penned by Boogie reader Sydney Fishman. For five years, Benson’s held down the corner of East Houston and Essex Streets with craft beers, sumptuous burgers, and the occasional movie night. The movie nights, according to owner Annie Morton, were the highlight of Benson’s tenure on the Lower East Side. Before […]
With scaffolding and other construction elements removed from The Artisan building at Essex Crossing, another part of the Market Line is coming into focus. Unlike the westernmost third of the Market Line, this section beneath 180 Broome Street feels less like a dungeon. Design elements, including massive grand staircase and full facade glass open the […]
The hotel newcomer underway on lower Eldridge Street – recently topped out at fourteen stories – met the might of the city. Inspectors from Department of Buildings issued a stop-work order on 79 Eldridge about a week ago. It’s a full order which only allows work “to provide shoring for all staircases and provide design […]
Eighteen community groups within Community Board 3 on the Lower East Side this week co-signed an open letter to city and state officials urging inquiry into the removal of Alexandra Militano and Carolyn Ratcliffe as chairs of the SLA and Arts & Culture subcommittees, respectively. The shakeup, apparently inspired by a stated “new direction” for […]
Down in the bowels of the East Broadway subway station, those hideous wall monsters are now a thing of the past. For years, the tunnel tiling devolved into a complete mess. Conditions were ripe for the formation of brown, slug-like deposits that grew ever larger by the week. Until this month, coincidentally the 85th anniversary […]
Finally a step in the right direction. Pop-up COVID-19 test sites opened in Chinatown yesterday, providing much-needed alternatives to locals seeking a swab. The sites – one at 62 Mott Street, and the other at Confucius Plaza – offer walk-in swab tests and antibodies tests. Center Laboratories is handling testing and results, which are emailed or texted […]
With the Lunar New Year fast approaching, the U.S. Postal Service released its annual commemorative stamp to honor the holiday. Yet, the new postage seriously misses the mark, is wrong on many levels. The Lunar New Year – observed this year on February 12 – is celebrated by several Asian cultures, but it’s difficult to […]
