UPDATE 1/8/13: Looks like this is indeed related to Ollie’s Noodle Shop. The ONS at 1991 Broadway recently closed due to fire and a sign in the window is directing customers to Hiro Sushi @ Ollie’s. Posted last month that a place called Hiro Sushi At Ollie’s was slated to move into the old Backyard [...]
UPDATE 12/2: LeSportsac is open — looks like it’s initially a pop-up shop It’s been nearly four months since the Betsey Johnson store at 248 Columbus (btw. 71/72) closed (after a nearly two-month liquidation sale). Now it looks like a new tenant has finally signed a lease for the space: LeSportsac recently put up “Coming [...]
The new Lululemon slated for the corner of Broadway & 75th has been in the works February. Branded plywood went up in late May, and now there’s word the store is just a few weeks from opening.
Looks like Drybar is opening a new outpost on the Upper West Side. If you’re not familiar with the chain, don’t walk in expecting a drink — it’s a “blow dry bar.” No cuts. No color. Just blowouts, for only $40.
UPDATE 12/2: LeSportsac is open, but it’s only a pop-up shop… for now UPDATE 11/20: LeSportsac is moving into the former Betsey Johnson space UPDATE 7/23: Betsey Johnson officially closed as of Sunday The liquidation sale at the Upper West Side Betsey Johnson (248 Columbus, between 71st & 72nd) started nearly two months ago, with [...]
The Hot & Crusty at 2720 Broadway (104th/105th) seems to have closed suddenly. This doesn’t appear to be a health department closing, as there’s no DOH signage and the “Business is closed” sign is different than the usual “closed for renovations” signage typical in DOH closings.
Things are heating up at the Betsey Johnson liquidation sale (248 Columbus, between 71st & 72nd). It was just last week that they raised their discounts to 50% – 70% off. As of this weekend, the entire store is now 60% – 80% off.
UPDATE 6/28: Menu for A.G. Kitchen Mentioned last week (here & here) that Columbus Tavern (269 Columbus, between 72nd & 73rd) had closed rather suddenly and was rumored to be transforming into a Cuban restaurant. Turns out that was kinda right. It’s reopening tomorrow as A.G. Kitchen — an American restaurant with a Latin spin. [...]
The Betsey Johnson liquidation sale is still in full swing and the discounts have just been jacked up another notch. They started last month with 20% – 50% off, were raised to 40% – 60% about two weeks ago, and now the entire store stands at 50% – 70% off.
Looks like there’s some pre-opening action at the former Roam Boutique space at 488 Amsterdam (between 83rd & 84th). Roam closed earlier this year after seven years in the neighborhood.
Posted last month that Betsey Johnson is closing and having a liquidation sale. At the time, discounts were 20% – 40%; they’ve since been jacked up to 40% – 60% off.
Looks like there’s finally some action brewing in the former 90 Nuts space at 2442 Broadway (near 90th), which has been vacant for awhile.
