​This week we first broke news that Sweet Chick owner John Seymour had seized the iconic Pink Pony space next door at 176 Ludlow, and is transforming it into a coffee shop/barbershop hybrid. He’s teamed up with manager-partner Kyle Martin on the project, slated to debut on February 19.

As previously reported, the four-table coffee shop is positioned front-of-house, and utilizes the Pink Pony’s old bar-top; a four-chair barbershop straddles the middle of the space; office space rounds out the last third of square-footage in the back.

Time Out New York picks up our tablescraps and learns that the new multitasking venture is dubbed Ludlow Coffee Supply and Ludlow Hair Supply (Air Supply?). It’ll offer a “proprietary blend” of coffee roasted in Red Hook with a selection of “light bites.”

But what about hair in the food? This seems like it’ll get interesting. DOH, anyone?

The Department of Health came down to 174 Orchard Street and ordered the establishment shut. The requisite yellow […]

First Rendering of the 14-Story Hotel Rising at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel. But that’s precisely what’s happening at 79 Eldridge Street, where construction last week commenced on a new context-killing fourteen-story lodge. And now we have our first sight of what to expect from this long-vacant lot. It’s amazing how these illustrations completely gussy up neighborhoods to make […]

The Neon Lights of Sunshine Cinema Have Gone Dark

The Sunshine Cinema on East Houston is one step closer to its grave. While the brickwork of the building remains bathed in orange glow, the marquee lettering was not as lucky.
