The Alphabet City Target is here and the mega-company made a huge unintended splash by re-purposing the iconic awning of legendary punk venue CBGBs to announce their grand opening.
For as much information that was out there when rumors of a Trader Joe’s was going to open at 500 East 14th Street, we’re surprised by the lack of coverage over the last 6-8 months. (Update: 2019 rumors flying below)
Around 11:30 PM last night, several Alphabet City / East Village residents reported hearing 8-10 loud pops of unmistakable gunfire. EVGrieve reported that the shots happened on Avenue C between East 11th and 12th street on the east side of the street in the C-Town shopping plaza.
Back in mid-July, Citi Bikers in the Lower Side Side/East Village received an email announcing that the Citi Bike station at 14th street and Avenue B would be removed.
If you’re claustrophobic and need an MRI, the standing MRI is a good option. That said, if you’re expecting more than an MRI report on a CD and a pat on a back, then you shouldn’t get one from the Stand Up MRI in the East Village.
Three weeks ago, someone rolled onto my knee while playing basketball. The momentum of his body forcing my knee in a direction it naturally doesn’t go and I felt something in my knee move (something that shouldn’t be moving).
Living near the East Village, it’s not a rare occurrence to find the two Citi Bike stations nearest my apartment completely bare. When it happens, I have to walk to a station a couple extra streets to grab a bike.
Did you recently notice a credit card charge for a merchant named “Cienfuegos” on your statement and don’t recall purchasing anything from a “Cienfuegos“?
With more than 1500 pizza places in New York City, you have to be outstanding to separate yourself from the pack.
Two years ago when I first moved to New York, Avenues A, B, C and D were talked about as if they were apart of the East Village. And I happily went along not knowing better.
In the former space that housed Spina jut three months ago, is now Babu Ji.
With each new bank branch and fast franchise that opened on East 14th the last two years, the Kennedy Fried Chicken outpost felt more and more out of place in the East Village.
The nearest Citi Bike station to me is on East 10th and Avenue A, so I walk by the basketball courts at Tompkins Square Park all the time.
One’s definition of “cheap” becomes skewed when they live in a city like New York for a long enough time. Cheap becomes relative.
There’s no shortage of cafes in the East Village, but finding one that feels cozy and welcoming with a consistent, reliable internet connection and power outlets isn’t a given.
Memorial Service for Wen Hui Ruan Wen Hui Ruan, who was killed a few weeks ago in a senseless beating, will have a public memorial service
Locals are angry that Wen Hui Ruan was brutally assaulted and died from his attack from 20-year old Jamie Pugh. Now after a memorial and some time to reflect, the community is outraged that no one acted sooner to get him help.
I’m sad that I won’t able to attend tonight’s public memorial to Wen Hui Ruan, the 68-year old retired garment worker and grandfather who was brutally assaulted by 20 year old Jamie Pugh
I’ve had so many thoughts running through my head when I first read the news story about 20-year old Jamie Pugh attacking and ultimately killing 68-year old Wen Hui Ruan last Friday in Alphabet City.
