It appears the former home of Moby’s TeaNY on Rivington Street has finally nailed down a permanent tenant. Another cafe type. The Good Kind inked a ten-year lease on June 1 to take over the sub-grade commercial space at 90 Rivington. It’s a Danish-style cafe concept run by principal Anna Poulsen, and will serve Brownsville […]

The teeny bit of TeaNY that remains on Rivington Street will eventually get replaced. But until then, it’s a staging area for City Council hopeful Chris Marte.

Here’s you chance to rent the former TeaNY; mount up. TeaNY, the vegan tea spot co-founded by Moby fifteen years ago, is now up for grabs.

It’s oh so fitting that, as one Moby vegan joint gets going (Little Pine in LA), an original has gone under. We’re talking, of course, about Rivington Street staple TeaNY. The restaurant had just reopened following an abbreviated closure due to tax troubles three weeks earlier. Now the premises is in the hands of the landlord […]

Inspectors seized the popular vegetarian cafe for nonpayment of taxes, and kept the gate shuttered for weeks. Those intimidating orange stickers were also plastered across the glass. The matter has apparently […]

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Again. Two days ago, the New York Department of Taxation and Finance visited 90 Rivington Street and seized the popular vegetarian cafe, TeaNY, presumably for nonpayment of taxes. The restaurant is shuttered, with those bold red seizure stickers currently residing in the windows. Closure was so sudden, meanwhile, that […]

By most accounts, the CityRacks pilot program is gaining some traction. More local businesses are expressing interest in “sponsoring” newfangled parking spaces outside their establishments.

Notice anything different about TeaNY’s 90 Rivington facade? Yup, their signage was swapped with more lights and a slightly different name.

Ten years ago this past May, Moby and then-girlfriend Kelly Tisdale pooled their efforts to open TeaNY at 90 Rivington Street. But the subterranean Lower East Side cafe seems to be caught in some unchartered waters.
