‘Sensei’ Art Bar Erased from Eldridge Street After a Year

Posted August 22, 2018 at 5:03 am

It’s not a stretch to say that art gallery bars these days are not a sound business model. Invariably, such concepts morph into nightclubs or close outright (or both).

However, like clockwork, the fire department each summer warns city dwellers against uncapping fire hydrants for relief. While the ensuing torrent is fun, doing so is illegal. The penalty is up to 30 days […]

Did you see this? Earlier this week, locals cracked open the fire hydrant at the northeast corner of Eldridge and Stanton Streets for some much-needed relief.

Posted February 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel.

14-Story Hotel Development Reactivated at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

Posted February 21, 2018 at 5:00 am

It’s been two years since we learned about the new hotel planned for 79 Eldridge Street, the long-vacant lot situated south of Grand. Despite the submission of building plans to the city back in March 2016, inactivity has been the trend here. No longer. As of last week, the green-hued perimeter plywood is now constructed […]
