Civilianaire Fails Out of 53 East Houston After Two Years - We saw this one coming a mile away. A death watch that came to pass. The year-long 50%-off merchandise sale became a rather sure indication of demise. It was just a matter of when. Well, that day of reckoning arrived yesterday for the Civilianaire boutique on East Houston, where a constant placement of window signage […] http://ow.ly/2VpjH7

The Peace Pentagon on Lafayette Street Hits the Market Again as Development Oppourtunity http://ow.ly/2Vl7gU
For the second time in exactly five years, the storied Peace Pentagon on Lafayette Street, the decades-long haven of progressive activism owned by the AJ Muste Memorial Institute, is again on the chopping block. Price of the pitched development site is not listed (i.e. soliciting offers), but the last ask was pegged at $5.95 million.…

Whynot Cafe on Orchard Street Fails, Looks to Become ‘Sushi Wa’ http://ow.ly/2VetfY
Whynot, because it couldn't. Whynot Cafe failed to gain traction due in large part to its inability to secure a full liquor license. Their two bids met stiff resistance from the community including the LES Dwellers. And now it's on last legs. Rumblings of its closure had circulated for the last week, but their PR…

Cocoron Chef Debuts ‘Goemon Curry’ Japanese Restaurant on Kenmare Street http://ow.ly/2VoHAU
The new Japanese establishment Goemon Curry opened over the weekend at 29 Kenmare Street. Its debut was of the soft variety, yet still managed a sizeable splash. Indeed, launch was pretty much announced with subtle shill from Mission Chinese guru Danny Bowien. As previously reported, Goemon Curry is the brainchild of noodle chef Yoshihito Kira.…

CB3 Resoundingly Demands DOT to Halt New Chinatown Bus Permits http://ow.ly/2VowZy
The downtown bus depot that is Chinatown is divided. On the one side, bus business is flourishing thanks to an overcapacity Port Authority terminal; on the other, embattled residents who are sick of the dangers and quality-of-life nuisance. Only in the last year or so has the issue gained traction with city government. Now this.…

Sanitation Snow Plow Rams Hotel Construction Site on Broome Street http://ow.ly/2VlxKk
Earlier this morning, a Department of Sanitation snow plow rammed into the hotel construction site at the southeast corner of Broome and Allen Streets. It appears the vehicle - cleaning the area - cut the turn too sharply and bowled into the sidewalk bridge, which is now unstable. First responders are on the scene to…

Orchard Hell Building Retail Units Sell For $21M - Ever since the branded sidewalk bridge arrived in October, the commercial retail in the base of the 23-story Orchard Hell Building has been dormant.

‘Farmhouse Restaurant’ Replaces Sebastian LC on Ludlow Street http://ow.ly/2VetfX
Our suspicions about the Sebastian LC closure late last year were at least partially confirmed this week. Yes, the corner restaurant is back open, but not with the same moniker. Management is forsaking the French fare for the more generic American style cuisine. Farmhouse Restaurant announced itself a couple days ago with a new sign…
