The Bowery Doesn’t Have Many Cemusa Newsstands, But Will Soon Gain Another

Posted September 8, 2014 at 10:00 am

The Bowery itself is rather bereft of Cemusa newsstands, all of which are easily counted on one hand. In fact, not accounting for side streets, there are only three such sidewalk businesses from Cooper to Chatham Square – northeast corner of Bleecker, at Bayard, and Marilyn Louie’s cramped quarters at Pell Street. But this reality […]

The Bowery just lost another restaurant supplier – Prince Restaurant Equipment at 241 Bowery.

After news broke yesterday about the departure of York’s Shona Gallery from 1 Prince Street, another upper Bowery vacancy is currently in the works.  Indeed, it didn’t take too long for the leasing signs to appear at 259 Bowery in the wake of the Sperone Westwater Gallery inauguration last month.
