On the Bowery, new open-air commerce is set to take hold in the coming weeks. Plans have been underway for the better part of a year to convert the former Downtown Auto & Tire at the corner of Great Jones into a “quick-serve” marketplace of sorts. We’ve known as much since back in January.

Identity of the establishment was well hidden from the public, though. A mystery, until now. A Boogie birdie just revealed the identity as the Bowery Market, opening in the not too distant future. There’s even a website to boot, but without any launch information (only “launching soon”).

As previously reported, the Bowery Market concept is basically a collection of kiosks manned by quick-serve food vendors. Essex Street’s own Salvadoran spot Cabilito Pupuseria is the only confirmed participant thus far, and hosted a prior crowdfund campaign to help make it happen.

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.

Before its demise fourteen years ago, 49 East Houston had been a one-story […]
