It’s been about three weeks since Pinkberry opened at 414 Amsterdam (near 80th). In another month or two, a Yogurtland will open about 100 feet north at 420 Amsterdam, the long-vacant space that use to house 420 Bar & Lounge.

Upper West Side Openings & Closings: Maje, Kate Spade, Variazioni, Radio Shack, Town Shop

Looks like women’s clothing boutique Maje is coming to the Upper West Side. Signage recently appeared at the old Space NK Apothecary store at 217 Columbus (between 69th & 70th).

Upper West Side Openings & Closings: The Sunburnt Calf, Burke & Wills, Manhattan Cricket Club

Meant to post this last month and it got completely lost in the shuffle. Popular Australian gastropub The Sunburnt Calf has shuttered (226 W. 79th, between Amsterdam & Broadway).
