Chinatown Bus Block of East Broadway Welcomes New Pizzeria

Posted on: April 25th, 2018 at 5:08 am by

The de-facto “bus depot” that is East Broadway between Pike and Rutgers will soon welcome its second pizza joint.

The as-yet-unnamed slice spot is to take up residence in the east store of 150 East Broadway, the space previously held by a short-lived barbershop. With this addition alongside the Japanese dessert shop, The Little One, the commercial ranks of the property are now stocked.

We’re told that the newcomer is helmed by a pizza maker with several other parlors around the Lower East Side and East Village.

The five-story tenement building at 150 East Broadway changed hands exactly two years ago. Michael Edelman and Parag Sawhney of real estate investment firm Penn South Capital purchased the property in March 2016 for $4.45 million.

It’s also worth noting that Penn South signed on another pizza place by this same owner at its 159 Ludlow Street (aka 101 Stanton) property last month (BD Best Pizza).
