Netflix will post up on the Lower East Side for the remainder of this week to shoot scenes for its upcoming feature, Otherhood. We spotted these “no parking” signs along Grand Street, west of Allen.
Deadline describes Otherhood as a comedy “about three Moms who leave their suburban life to reconnect with their estranged sons in NYC.” It stars Patricia Arquette, Angela Bassett, and Felicity Huffman.
The story is adapted from a novel by William Sutcliffe called Whatever Makes You Happy.
“Graffiti doesn’t make your life better, it just makes your neighborhood look worse.” Those words come courtesy of then-Knicks player Mike Newlin as part of a 1982 public service announcement against graffiti. A gaggle of local celebrities like Joe Frazier and Celia Cruz were spokespeople for the anti-graffiti campaign – launched by the Koch administration […]
The roadway of East 14th Street between Avenue B and First Avenue has been a construction zone for months, emitting plumes of dust and constant noise (and mysterious ooze). At work is an L train entrance at Avenue A, elevators on the north and south sides of 14th Street, as well as a new substation […]
The last remnant of the Roumanian-American Synagogue on Rivington Street is undergoing an expansion. Department of Buildings finally issued permits last month to the owner of 95 Rivington Street – Lorenzo Giuffredi, per public records – for a rear-yard addition. The official green light arrives over five years after initial filing. Work on the extension […]
The Essex Street Market is on the precipice of ditching its 79-year-old home for fancy new digs at Essex Crossing. All vendors currently in operation will cross Delancey for upgraded stalls, joining a gaggle of other newcomers. In fact, changes to the proverbial lineup have been myriad. The final roundup – there are forty total […]
Most often, luxury living tends to breed trendy or health-conscious establishments for retail partners. Not always, though. Over at the upscale 196 Stanton Street, the commercial units largely remained vacant ever since the complex debuted. Until now. They’ve resorted to chain pizza to fill the commercial void – Domino’s. This latest outpost – the second […]
Selina is coming to the Bowery sooner than you might think. The new eight-story development at 138 Bowery is basically ready to go. Long gone are the construction materials and fencework; and the lobby is already attended, with a receptionist sitting guard behind a desk. Selina seems to be in a preview mode of sorts […]
Mulberry Market did not open last month in Little Italy as previously disclosed. Worksite chatter indicates that the launch date was instead pushed back to “early April.” The new supermarket is apparently a “family business” that is years in the making. It replaces the decades-old MET Food, which was unable to negotiate favorable lease terms […]
Vampire Weekend just dropped a music video for the new single, “Sunflower,” and they’re big-timing with the cast of characters. Directed by Jonah Hill, the trippy two-and-a-half-minute reel takes place at the iconic Zabars on the Upper West Side and Barney Greengrass, and quite literally spins (thanks for the vertigo, Jonah) past the likes of […]
The historic Beaux Arts library building at 61 Rivington Street is amidst a luxury makeover. It’s the latest Lower East Side project by the Horizon Group, which acquired the property last spring for $8.45 million. Their proposal for 61 Rivington Street (aka The Horizon at Rivington) is a twenty-foot extension atop the current four-story structure. […]
Not only is the Bowery Savings Bank landmark for sale, so are its adjacent neighbors on either side. Both 132 Bowery and 116 Elizabeth Street, which flank the historic building, were dropped on the open market last month. Avison Young is the brokerage of record. No price is floated. The latter property is an office […]
