Home Goods ‘Coming Soon’ to 37 Orchard Street

Posted April 25, 2014 at 6:07 am

Coming Soon is. When the facade of floor-to-ceiling glass was installed a few months ago, the knee-jerk reaction was that of another gallery in the Orchard Street stable of showrooms. But the spat of changes at number 37, the former home of a real estate office for Alan Tam, is for something very different. It’s […]

Coming Soon: Red Mango at 145 Allen Street

Last modified January 6, 2011 at 4:57 pm

Looks like the Lower East Side might soon become the next staging ground for an epic fro-yo battle.  First to enter the local arena is Red Mango. It does so after having lost footholds in Greenwich Village and on St. Mark’s Place.  But we shouldn’t count out the competition – Pinkberry and 16 Handles might […]

Coming Soon: Seleven Gallery at 145 Orchard Street

Posted September 21, 2010 at 6:19 am

NY Wax Boutique lasted barely seven months at 145 Orchard Street before shuttering for good last June.  Now, after a brief vacancy period, the space is already back in action. Yesterday afternoon, the store awning was updated and a branded sign installed above the entrance.  And what’s in store here, you ask? An international boutique […]

For many years, Rico-Perez Products held down a small storefront outpost at 162 Allen Street, serving natural vitamins and supplements to a primarily Hispanic clientele.  But the operation didn’t last into the current decade.  Since the closure of this location (there are nine others across the tri-state area), the space has been a void, with […]

Coming Soon: An “American Deli” at 203 Allen

Posted August 9, 2010 at 6:28 am

It seems one bodega begets another at 203 Allen Street, where, until last November, Lucky Stop Deli was tenant. The onetime 24-hour convenience store languished on the open market for many moons, while the navy blue awning gradually fell to pieces in the elements. But there is movement anew!

Coming Soon: Cocoron at 61 Delancey

Posted July 30, 2010 at 6:26 am

61 Delancey has found a new occupant after almost a year of vacancy.  And the early word? Well, the former Don the Verb space near Allen Street will soon don the noodles, as it were.

New Pizza Parlor Opening Soon at 127 Stanton

In November 2008, the Dulcinée vintage boutique shop at 127 Stanton Street closed its doors for the greener pastures of internet sales.  The storefront remained dormant with requisite “for rent” signs inviting new business.  And one finally took the bait.

146 Orchard Street Awaits Mystery Restaurant

Last modified December 28, 2010 at 9:58 pm

In recent weeks, work has jump-started inside 146 Orchard Street.  Doors are open on many days to reveal a halfway-complete interior.  When we walked past yesterday morning, two workers were busy with decor – painting, hanging colorful wallpaper, etc.  Both declined to comment on the venture, and said that a namesake is still unknown.  Nevertheless, […]

Denizens of Spring Street, get ready for a waxing! The so-called Ministry of Waxing is slated to move into the recently-renovated 56 Spring Street sometime this summer under the moniker Strip.
