C’est Beau Pop-Up Opens at 55 Delancey

Posted July 6, 2010 at 6:26 am

In October 2009, Creative Sign, Inc. moved just two doors down from 55-D Delancey into the gut-renovated cornershop of 55 Delancey.  After the dozen-yard re-location, 55-D gained a highly conspicuous “for rent” banner, yet remained dormant until now.  Hello, pop-up!

Coming Soon: Berkli Parc Cafe at 61 Delancey

Posted July 6, 2010 at 6:11 am

The prime real estate at the southwest corner of Allen and Delancey is to become a cafe tentatively called Berkli Parc Cafe.  The news is not too surprising, though, considering the recent positioning of other upscale restaurants near this particular intersection (e.g. Sorella, White Slab Palace).

The Affordable Housing Toolkit at 61 Delancey

In early November, Indoor-Oudoor Flooring Supplies moved a few doors west from its location at 61 Delancey, and now resides at 55 Delancey.  Aside from a brief gallery show in mid-December, this corner real estate has remained vacant; affixed to its awning is a permanent for lease advertisement.  But as of today, this space will […]

Quick Turnaround at 55 Delancey

In one short month, the plywood sidewalk shed at 55 Delancey has come and gone, with a new glass storefront in place.  Such quick turnaround is quite shocking in this neighborhood.  It must be a record!  But we digress.  Over the weekend, the double-doors were open, revealing a man sweeping the steel floor of the […]

55 Delancey Gutted for Renovation

Posted September 14, 2009 at 6:17 am

Over Labor Day weekend, 55 Delancey was boxed in a conspicuous plywood sidewalk shed.  This after being out of commission for a year plus.  Save for a brief art installation called A New Currency, the former home of Lichtenstein’s fell into disrepair and became a classic case of abandonment and a magnet for vandalism. Busted […]

New Occupant at 55 Delancey

Last modified April 13, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Just over one year ago, the classic Lichtenstein & Co. signage at 55 Delancey was painted black, the windows scrubbed bare. In the interim, the vacant space fell into disrepair, and was plagued with plenty of broken glass, street stickers, and graffiti. And except for a new sidewalk out front and blue “for rent” advertising, […]
