An office and outpost for Hint Water, a “healthy” beverage brand founded in 2005 by AOL executive Kara Goldin. Now, its modus operandi is coffee with something called Me & Terri. Signage for the newcomer […]

Last modified December 28, 2016 at 12:33 pm

That new fish & chips joint on Clinton Street now has its identity. Dubbed Simply Hooked, it will offer “sustainable seafood.” The city issued building permits for the space last month, but the teaser signage didn’t arrive in the windows of 47 Clinton Street until earlier this week. What we do know is that five-table snack shop is […]

Posted December 20, 2016 at 5:00 am

One commercial anchor of upper Clinton Street is reaching a dead end. The Chinese-leaning Clinton Supermarket – on the block for more than a decade – just hit the market last week. Meaning, another lifeblood for locals is set to disappear. Indeed, a real estate listing popped up on Craigslist a few days ago for the […]

Saluggi’s East Can Finally Serve Pizza at its LES Outpost

Posted November 7, 2016 at 5:10 am

These are the Most Cursed Commercial Spaces on the Lower East Side [LISTS]

Posted October 31, 2016 at 9:34 am

It’s a scenario we see play out ad nauseam on the Lower East Side. But who is really to blame? Is the landlord over-charging to the point where business […]
