Of Course The DL Would Host the Milo Yiannopoulos Book Party (with ‘Jihadi Strippers’ and CNN Bashing)

Last modified July 10, 2017 at 3:55 pm

Of course The DL would host a book party for Milo Yiannopoulos, the extreme right-wing iconoclast.

Posted June 13, 2017 at 9:35 am

Out of the ground for months already, the so-called “Gateway” to Essex Crossing stands at roughly seven stories, and now sports some noticeable contextual definition.

It’s not immediately clear why the plane is here, nor who who it belongs to, but there it sits, nonetheless. (And next to a trashed refrigerator, we might add.) Wings are clipped, and wheels removed; the cockpit and […]

So Much for Mahfar’s ‘Donated’ Art Space on Delancey Street

Posted May 11, 2017 at 5:06 am

It’s the former donated art haven that wasn’t. Aside from early press hype and a few exterior murals, the former Chase bank branch on Delancey Street didn’t quite become the destination initially envisioned. So much for “The New Allen” ruling the roost. You’ll recall that landlord Samy Mahfar “donated” the multilevel space to nascent street […]
