Six-Story East Houston Commercial Development Gets New Name and Branding

Posted November 16, 2016 at 5:07 am

Ahead of the new commercial development at 19 East Houston, the spit of land formerly reserved for city vehicle parking is re-annointed as 606 Broadway. This despite the lion’s share of frontage along East Houston Street. Eye-grabbing teaser signage to that effect was hoisted above the active project site last week. And the neon-inspired billboard […]

Adjacent Commercial Developments Break Ground Simultaneously on East Houston Street

There is no longer much evidence of the former Honest Boy Fruit Stand on East Houston Street, which closed in December 2014 after decades in business.

‘Honest Boy Fruit Stand’ Remnants on East Houston Burned in Weekend Fire; Permits Approved for New 6-Story Building

Honest Boy Fruit Stand was a SoHo fixture for over three decades, feeding the mass of humanity that passed through on a daily basis. But it closed at the end of last year with barely a whimper. Its lifeless bones remained as testament to its significance in the neighborhood, even if littered with empty bottles and […]
