Posted January 4, 2019 at 5:05 am

Now, this was downright predictable. No sooner did the city complete and cap roadwork in the Bowery-East Houston intersection than another work crew start digging anew. It’s only been two weeks since this leg of the reconstruction project wrapped and received a new layer of asphalt. Just goes to show the apparent lack of coordination […]

Never thought you’d live to see the day the intersection of Bowery and East Houston received new pavement? It’s here. Infrastructure work at the high-trafficked junction recently completed (for real), and the pavement crews came through this week. New asphalt, new markings. Take a look.

It’s opening day. Today is the grand opening of the Allegro Coffee outpost inside the Whole Foods Bowery. The sign on the front door of the old beer depot signals as much.
