Posted July 18, 2018 at 5:08 am

Four months later, that new workout studio, FitHouse, just left the Bowery for good. Unfit for the location, the gates are now drawn and space completely cleared out. Customers are instead directed via storefront signage to the new 5,500 square-foot NoHo location at 712 Broadway (“five blocks away”).

276 Bowery Becomes Arlette Tebele’s Pop-Up Art Gallery

Posted August 9, 2017 at 5:09 am

When area stores go vacant, the trend is almost always to install a temporary gallery of some sort. Increase the exposure (i.e. eyeballs) on the property to draw attention and hopefully net a new tenant. And that’s exactly what’s happening over at 276 Bowery. Sunrise Rainbow Kitchen Supply vacated the large Bowery commercial space earlier […]

The Nike Stadium “creative retail space” on the Bowery is more than just a simple pop-up operation.  We are told it’s in for the longer haul.  Especially since it’s backed by a multimillion dollar, multinational conglomerate.  Notwithstanding, the entire storefront has undergone a complete transformation in the last week.  Rather than a black facade punctuated […]
