From 1961 up until 1997, there were no “legal” tattoo shops in New York City. The City Health Department banned tattooing due to an alleged series of blood-borne Hepatitis-B cases linked to Coney Island tattoo parlors in the late 1950s. That tattooing was once banned here seems so archaic now. Especially with the proliferation of the art […]

Posted August 29, 2018 at 5:04 am

It was a year of faded signs and promises. Indeed, despite the arrival of branded awning and “coming soon” announcements at the corner of Clinton and Rivington Streets, Bricia cafe had been notably silent. That’s all at an end, though.

‘BYGGYZ’ will Stay Open with Reduced Hours While Searching for Investors

Posted June 29, 2018 at 5:02 am

In a somewhat surprising reversal, Dewey Durfresne announced yesterday that BYGGYZ is not permanently closed, after all. Instead, its hours will be severely reduced. The over-priced sandwich shop was planning to shutter this Sunday after less than a year on Clinton Street (south of Stanton). Not anymore, though. Grub St noted yesterday that the plan […]

Posted June 27, 2018 at 5:03 am

Just as the Draft Environmental Impact Statement was released for proposed redevelopment of the Two Bridges waterfront, fresh renderings of the newest super-tall hit the press.

Dewey Dufresne Shutters ‘BYGGYZ’ After Less than a Year on Clinton Street

Posted June 26, 2018 at 5:06 am

A little more than nine months after its debut, Dewey Dufresne’s over-hyped gourmet sandwich counter, BYGGYZ, just bottomed out. It’ll close for good next Sunday (July 1). The name will live on, though, with residencies at Smorgasburg East River Park on Saturdays, as well as the forthcoming Smorgasburg in Prospect Park. In retrospect, the eatery spent more […]
