Welcome to the New Bowery Boogie!

Posted on: November 7th, 2010 at 11:58 pm by

By now you’ve noticed that the site looks different. Let’s talk about it.

At Bowery Boogie we’re passionate about many things, but most of all, the Lower East Side. Right below that is music and technology. Recently you may have noticed an uptick in our coverage of the local music scene. We’ll be adding even more music-related content. Don’t worry, it won’t replace the regular news coverage.

Being passionate about technology is admittedly geeky, but this is a website after all. We looked at the sites we love, noted the positives and negatives, and tried to include as much of what we liked as possible into this new layout and design.

Some key changes:
– Sending us tips is much easier. Hit the button on the top of the page, type in your message and that’s it. Keep em coming!
– We used to have RSS feeds for every individual street. That got too complicated. If you’re an RSS person, subscribe here.
– Enjoy the pictures. We like big pictures and added more of them.

These projects are never perfect, so if you have any problems or notice something strange or buggy, let us know. Email us, hit us up on Twitter etc.

Things might be changing a bit over the next couple days as we tweak everything. We hope you like this new layout as much as we do!

– Dave

Under the Floorboards at Long-Vacant East Houston Lot

Bereft of substantial activity in nearly two decades, the long-vacant parcel at 49 East Houston Street is in deterioration overdrive. An eagle-eyed tipster notes that the floorboards atop the existing foundation are now busted. Creating a pseudo entryway into the cellar level. Before its demise fourteen years ago, 49 East Houston had been a one-story […]
