MooShoes Full Service Vegan Grocery Opens at the End of the Month on Orchard Street

Posted January 17, 2017 at 5:10 am

MooShoes reopened back in September with a totally new look. The popular cruelty-free shoe shop divided its retail space at 78 Orchard Street, and is now getting into the food game. Quite literally narrowing the retail shopping experience allowed ownership to introduce Orchard Grocer, as we first reported. The full service vegan grocery will feature […]

‘Red Compass’ Closes Down After a Year on Orchard Street and Probably Won’t Reopen

Posted January 12, 2017 at 5:00 am

Here’s some news that will shock no one. Red Compass, the ill-fated Georgian restaurant at 154 Orchard Street, is apparently out of business. The sub-level rat den restaurant has been closed for consecutive nights, and without notice. The only clue of its demise is the “Rent Demand” letter taped to the shuttered gates. According to […]

Post-Storm Stray Voltage Found on Orchard Street

Posted January 11, 2017 at 5:18 am

Stray voltage remains one of Con Edison’s biggest problems, yet it’s not often discussed in the public forum. Only when tragedy strikes. (The placement of the skull Halloween jug is apropos.) The last time the hot-button issue came up was in February 2014 when a dog was electrocuted to death on Clinton Street. Objects on […]

Looks Like the 10-Year-Old ‘Dressing Room’ is not Long for Orchard Street

Posted January 11, 2017 at 5:00 am

On Orchard Street, sneakers and spirits are threatened, as the Dressing Room may soon undress for the last time. Tombstone leasing signage, courtesy of Samy Mahfar’s REAL New York brokerage, is presently affixed above the door.

Hanksy’s ‘Dump Trump’ Mural on Orchard Street was Just Erased

Posted January 6, 2017 at 3:23 pm

Arguably the most popular and perennially photographed Hanksy mural is now history. The “Dump Trump” piece on Orchard Street, in which His Excellency’s head sits atop a pile of shit, was reportedly ordered erased by the building’s owners. The whitewash happened earlier this afternoon; it was a surprise. Most striking about this mural was that it […]

Posted January 4, 2017 at 10:23 am

At a slim fifty-five seconds, the following video is a time capsule from a very different Lower East Side. Boogie reader Adam Varsano shares the quick clip – shot by his father – which candidly captures a northbound stroll on Orchard Street, circa 1962-63.

T-Shirt Express Moves up the Block as 15 Orchard Street Changes Hands

Posted January 3, 2017 at 5:15 am

T-Shirt Express, the wholesale apparel shop known for its cheap price points on everything from tees and hoodies to custom designs, is on the move. Purportedly forced out due to real estate speculation. But it’s not going far. Last week, the store began packing up its longtime headquarters at 15 Orchard Street for greener pastures up […]

Five-Level ‘Galerie Perrotin’ Begins Build-out at Beckenstein Building on Orchard Street

Posted December 27, 2016 at 5:14 am

The historic Beckenstein building on Orchard Street is undergoing a massive retail shift as we speak. You’ll recall that the property was acquired by DelShah Capital in August 2015 for $28 million. Not surprisingly, the old-school vendors that operated here for upwards of a decade didn’t survive the transition. (World Hats moved up the block to […]
