DOB Allows Return of The DL and GreenStar Foods at 95 Delancey After Partial Collapse

Your reprieve from The DL is finished; the problematic nightclub is no longer dark. Back in business after two days of forced hiatus at the corner of Ludlow and Delancey Streets.

Tuesday morning, a chunk of exterior dislodged from 95 Delancey and tumbled to the sidewalk below. Fire Department was reportedly summoned, and the area isolated with crime scene tape. The structural collapse resulted in a partial vacate order from the Department of Buildings almost immediately, and a request for further structural inspections by the city. That went down yesterday, along with a recommendation to rescind.

And that’s precisely what happened.

Partial vacate order issued by DOB, no rescinded

An emergency sidewalk shed now covers half the building and wraps around the corner of 95 Delancey.

As a patron, however, you would have almost no clue that anything was amiss at The DL. Aside from the vacate paperwork taped to the storefront, there hadn’t been any update on any of its social media platforms. Only a plug for various parties.
