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.
MUW reader Kevin sent in this photo showing that a new liquor store is moving into the space.
Not the sexiest opening of all-time, but better than nothing.
In more interesting news, if you missed the post earlier today, women’s clothing retailer Betsey Johnson is going out of business. There’s a liquidation sale with 20% – 50% off at their UWS store at 248 Columbus.
Elsewhere… I thought I had mentioned this previously, but I think it got lost in the shuffle. Blondi’s Hair Salon recently opened a second UWS location at 447 Amsterdam (between 81st & 82nd) — they also have a location 2742 Broadway (at 105th).
The new location is in the space previously occupied by Chinese restaurant West Lake Palace. After opening in December of 2010, WLP posted a sign last summer saying they were closed for renovations and then never reopened. Before WLP, the space was home to another Chinese restaurant, named Silk Road Palace. That place closed in October of 2010.
I think Blondi’s might be running some promotions to celebrate the new location — their number is 212-877-8182. If you have a student ID, they always offer a 20% discount.
As a reminder, it’s Day 2 of the most recent MTA FASTRACK maintenance program. There are major service changes between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am on the B/D trains (F/M too) — click here for full details.
Finally, mentioned last week that UWS newcomer Piccolo Cafe was having a soft opening last Friday. MUW reader (and softball/baseball teammate + UWS bar trivia host extraordinaire) was on hand and sent in the photos below — the place was packed.
Piccolo officially opened for business yesterday. If you’re looking for more information, I also posted Piccolo’s menu last week (they’re located at 313 Amsterdam, between 74th & 75th).
