There hasn’t been anything of note coming out of 342 Bowery since the Subway sandwich shop closed almost three years ago. In that time, the space became yet another gold coast vacancy. It almost became an “underground” sushi outpost, but those plans never happened. Instead, some fluff is here through Christmas-time. A so-called House of […]

Posted December 8, 2017 at 5:00 am

The Chinatown diamond district is getting cut once again.

And like its neighbor one door to the north, it’ll be redeveloped into an eight-story commercial building. […]

Posted December 5, 2017 at 4:58 am

Finally. The first overt acknowledgment from Ace Hotel that it’s in fact opening up a lodge on the Bowery. (Bowery Boogie was first to break the news way back in September 2013.)

Local preservationists are scrambling. Word dropped last week that the Landmarks Preservation Commission may likely decalendar a pair of rare two-hundred-year-old Federal-style row houses from its agenda by the end of the year. 206 Bowery and 22 East Broadway are back on the endangered list, despite the city’s initial position as significant structures warranting consideration.

More than two-and-a-half years after Green Depot departed the storied “Bunker” building, the former environmentally-concious hardware store remains a vacant shell of itself. At least two different brokerages tried to make a deal here, most recently RKF. However, it was under the tutelage […]

Posted November 28, 2017 at 5:09 am

It was only a couple weeks ago when we shot a photo of Agozar. That familiar feeling came over us – sensing that a place of this character couldn’t last much longer on Bowery 2.0. Sure enough, word came down the pike this week that the cuban restaurant will close forever on Thursday after fifteen […]
