No More Scaffolding for Base of Blue Condo

Posted October 29, 2010 at 6:33 am

Holy shitballs! We never thought the day would arrive, but here we are, at a complete loss for words. Within the last 48 hours, the semi-permanent network of scaffolding and netting at the three-story base of Blue was finally packed up for good. And a sidewalk saved in the process. Indeed, the derelict stretch of […]

Coming Soon: Saro at 102 Norfolk Street

Posted October 22, 2010 at 6:12 am

Global Grub had a rather limited shelf life at 102 Norfolk Street, just north of Delancey.  In the end, the small snack bar suffered the same fate as its seafood predecessor Tides. But work on a new restaurant has begun anew in the last few weeks.

Blue Turns Green Above Delancey

Posted September 20, 2010 at 6:19 am

Blue is turning shades of green.  The so-called rear yard of the hoity-toity condo building, situated atop the adjacent 101 Norfolk Street, is now boasting some foliage. Six new trees were recently added to the Delancey section of the roof deck. The leaves haven’t turned yet.

Samuel Sings “I Heart NY”

New York City sanitation routes take center stage in the new music video for twenty-two-year-old Samuel’s “I Heart NY.”  Aided by his producers The Knocks, he seems to be having a little too much fun hanging off the back of the truck.

Window Washer High on Blue

Not long ago, a sole window washer was dangling from the angular glass facade of the Blue condo building. He cleaned each window pane, then rappelled to the next level. So cool!

Listing for Old Tonic Space at 107 Norfolk

Last modified June 27, 2012 at 1:27 am

Back in the early days of 2007, Tonic shuttered after nearly a decade of entertaining the community.  Pretty much an eternity in city time.  Since its demise, the onetime bastion of Lower East Side music has remained vacant, nearly forgotten in the deep dark shadows of Blue. Even though it’s languished on the open market […]

38 Delancey Reveals Ground Level

Last modified June 27, 2012 at 1:27 am

Over the weekend, much of the remaining worksite plywood was dismantled from the facade of 38 Delancey.  We now have a relatively unfettered look at the ground level of the new condoplex.

New Listings at Blue Condo

Last modified June 27, 2012 at 1:27 am

Another listing at the Blue Condo just creeped into the marketplace, and it’s all nines.  That’s right, for an infomercial-friendly $999,999, you can be the owner of a pixelated 972 square-foot, 1BR unit with direct access to “one of two huge common terraces.”  Sounds noisy.
