Forever Stalled ‘Delancey Bridge Tower’ Back on the Market for $33.9M

Posted April 11, 2017 at 5:00 am

One of the longest running arrested developments on the Lower East Side is back on the market. There is life yet in this beast. The forever-stalled Delancey Bridge Tower – a bang-to-bust construction dating back to 2012 – remains a partially-built nightmare. It should’ve already reached its twelve-story height by now. Nope. There hasn’t been […]

Posted April 6, 2017 at 5:00 am

The Transportation subcommittee of Community Board 3 last night heard, and resoundingly supported, the city’s proposal for a two-way protected bikeway along Delancey Street. Timing of the discussion was morbidly appropriate; twelve hours earlier, a box-truck driver hit, and […]

Posted March 10, 2017 at 5:09 am

Since 2009, the scruffy storefront at 7 Delancey Street has continuously hosted a local car service. Beginning when the Allen Car Service relocated from around the corner (137 Allen). Then, a couple years later, it became Ajay Car-Limo. And, now it’s altogether gone, replaced by the guy next door. Vintage purveyor Brian Procell recently took […]
