‘Little Canal’ Cafe Vying to Open at 26 Canal Street

Last modified December 29, 2015 at 2:08 pm

Last week, a Boogie reader sent along intel that a couple of “Williamsburg types” were sniffing around 26 Canal Street (corner of Rutgers). Presumably for some sort of new nightlife endeavor. After all, the time is ripe, as the cornershop was recently vacated by pop-up boutique Miss Hoe and this particular area continues to blow up. […]

Miss Hoe is Closing Down Both Downtown Boutiques

Posted October 23, 2015 at 5:17 am

Miss Hoe is again on the run. The quirky accessories boutique (named for its owner, not a porn euphemism) has bounced around the Bowery the last five years, and even opened a satellite store four months ago down at 26 Canal Street. Now both locations, including the semi-permanent outpost at 11 Kenmare, are closing for […]

‘Miss Hoe’ Opens Another Pop-Up Boutique at 26 Canal Street

Posted June 3, 2015 at 5:10 am

Ever since Miss Hoe departed 2 Prince Street last June, the boutique has been livin’ like a refugee. It relocated to 11 Kenmare Street (aka 176 Bowery) three months later, maintaining a pop-up presence in the interim. Even after the notorious Thor Equities snapped up the building in early May for $10.2 million. Now, a southerly […]

Two months of renovations at 2 Prince Street culminated in the grand opening of FEIT Direct (pronounced “fight”) over the weekend. The upscale boutique, maker of handmade luxury footwear for men and women, is now headquartered at the corner of Bowery and Prince.

Corporate conglomerates have finally colonized the easternmost fringe of Prince Street. Where just a few years ago turnover here at the corner of Bowery was quite high, stability seems ripe.

Booted from the Bowery, Miss Hoe Now Operating on Kenmare Street

Posted September 17, 2014 at 6:08 am

Openhouse Gallery downsized its holdings last year, and ditched the 11 Kenmare outpost for good. The 600 square-foot hindquarters of Champ Depot subsequently hosted a succession of pop-up retailers, culminating this past summer with the arrival of a popular Bowery refugee. Eclectic boutique Miss Hoe chose 11 Kenmare (aka 176 Bowery) as the setting for its […]

Miss Hoe is Leaving the Bowery After 4 Years in Business

Posted June 17, 2014 at 6:08 am

Through all the retail shuffles on the eastern terminus of Prince Street the last few years, accessories boutique Miss Hoe soldiered on. Seemingly unaffected by the constant music chairs. But now it, too, is ready to depart. At the end of this month (June 30), the store will close its doors at the corner of […]

When ‘Black Hand’ Gangsters Kidnapped a Doctor’s Son at 2 Prince Street

Last modified March 23, 2014 at 1:45 pm

The fascinating thing about living on the Lower East Side is that nearly every building you pass carries a rich history. Whenever I walk around the neighborhood, my mind always flows to “who were the first people to live here” or, “I wonder if anything newsworthy every happened in this building.” My mind wanders. The […]

Miss Hoe to Open at 2 Prince Street Today

Last modified May 24, 2010 at 9:43 am

Since Miss Hoe first announced its presence at the corner of Prince and Bowery last month, progress inside the storefront has been masked behind a wall of brown paper. The only indication of an opening date was the all-too-ambiguous “coming soon” signs. Nevertheless, workers were mobilized most mornings to ready the new boutique. And now […]
