Pending state approval, a new liquor store called Delancey Wine, Inc. will be opening at 41 Essex Street, between Grand and Hester. Plastered on the drawn gate is the notice of application for their liquor license, which will likely pass without opposition. Longtime residents may recognize the address, as this was once the location of the Glatt Kosher deli, G&M at 41 Essex.

Unlike some of the neighboring streets, the stretch of Essex below Grand has been relatively more resistant to change. Indeed, traces of pre-gold rush charm remain amidst the onslaught of gentrification. Many original tenement buildings are fairly intact, with ground-floor retail businesses – a Hebrew scribe (Sofer), Judaica shops, a sporting goods store, classic barber shops, a florist, and a psychic – still in operation. Alas, boutiques, upscale salons, trendy bars, and chain banks are likely to corrupt the area in the near future.
