Posted April 11, 2018 at 5:00 am

Chatham Square no longer has its OTB ghost signage. The former gambling parlor just off the Bowery – dormant since the city shut down operations eight years ago – is now a new Chase Bank. It opened to the public within the last week. This branch replaces the one that long held down the corner […]

Derelict OTB Parlor in Chatham Square Repossessed by (Another) Chase Bank

Posted March 2, 2018 at 5:07 am

Off Track Betting, the storefront gambling mainstay on the streets for decades, went out of business seven years ago. Most of the ghosted parlors around town were later renovated and/or repossessed by other businesses, including the Delancey Street location. But one outpost remained surprising intact through the intervening years. The derelict Chatham Square outpost, which, […]

All Leather Resumes its Perpetual ‘Store Closing Sale’ at Bank Building on Delancey

Posted December 5, 2017 at 5:08 am

There hasn’t been an anchor tenant at 104 Delancey Street since the Chase Bank closed and consolidated with the branch across the street in 2012. Instead, a steady stream of pop-up players, from Gagosian (2012) and Hanksy (2014) to Spirit Halloween (2015), All Leather, and Chabad LES. And now back again. All Leather returned to Delancey […]

2nd Avenue Deli Was Forced from the East Village 10 Years Ago

Posted January 11, 2016 at 10:33 am

For Jewish deli lovers these days, the joke is still that the venerable 2nd Avenue Deli no longer resides on its namesake street. In fact, there are two locations – Murray Hill and Upper East Side – neither of which are near Second Avenue (but are Kosher). Well, we’ve reached the milestone. Last week marked […]

Posted September 8, 2015 at 5:19 am

It’s that time of season again. No, not back to school. Rather, the torrent of Halloween costume shops popping up around town.

Recap: Hanksy Transforms Chase Bank for ‘Best of the Worst’

Posted March 30, 2015 at 10:02 am

For one night, the former Chase Bank on Delancey was an (alternative) art industry hotspot. Pun master Hanksy transformed the 12,000 square-foot commercial space into a carnival-esque show dubbed “Best of the Worst.” To use the word gallery as description would be a misnomer. Indeed, the soirée felt more like a high school rec-room party, […]

Posted March 27, 2015 at 10:00 am

Hanksy and friends are almost finished transforming the spartan bank space at 104 Delancey into another funhouse for the “Best of the Worst” show. You wouldn’t even know that a Chase branch once operated in this spot. The whitebox nature of the space is redesigned, albeit temporarily. Promising to deliver a vibe akin to the […]

Last modified March 10, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Street artist Hanksy is going big; possibly further than the “Surplus Candy” show last year in an Alphabet City tenement. This time around, the pop culture satirist is transforming the former Chase bank on Delancey into another funhouse of sorts. “Best of the Worst” is the result, a two-day art event exhibiting a “slew of street art […]

Artist Rad Roubeni Hosting a Month-Long Gallery Show Inside Former Chase Bank on Delancey

Posted December 19, 2014 at 5:38 am

So it looks like the old Chase bank branch at 104 Delancey Street has morphed into a pseudo gallery space, albeit a temporary one. At least until the landlord can find a suitable tenant willing to foot the bill. We saw workers cleaning up the other night for a similar event. After two years of […]
