Yes! Plenty Of Room For Small Businesses In SoHo!

After reading The Epoch Times article on the closing of neighborhood bakery Once Upon A Tart, ‘Is There Room for Small Businesses in NYC?‘ my gut reaction was, “YES, there is plenty of room, especially in SoHo!” While Sullivan Street and the nearby area has seen its fair share of closings (‘sNice, Joe’s Dairy, Milady’s, Rosebud, The Room {in […]

While there is no Department of Sanitation law on timing of garbage removal from commercial businesses, it came to my attention that while most businesses on Sullivan Street have their garbage carted away by 7am, The Dutch is consistently two hours behind at 9am. While enjoying coffee outside at Once Upon A Tart, a loud garbage truck parked in front […]

Is Half Of “The Room” On Sullivan Street Closing?

Update:  It now looks like the entire two stores that were once “The Room” are closed…hard to believe a chain of about 5 locations around the US would be closed by Marshall’s Legal Possession.  Maybe their 10-year lease renewal came back higher than expected and The Room decided to stop paying rent until they were […]

Adventures In Becoming A Neighborhood Blogger

I was recently asked, “How did you decide to blog about SoHo?”  While I wanted to respond, “I Am SoHo!” I started thinking about the chain of events that led me to Soho Strut and vision of a local voice for the 13,000 residents and thousands of businesses here.

Community Board #2 Is Too Tough On Restaurants in SoHo

I’ve been following the politics between restaurants applying for beer, wine and liquor via State Liquor Authority (SLA) approval in SoHo over the past year, but things have been heating up over the past month.  I wrote about Navy and Once Upon A Tart two times (here and here) and was in attendance at the Community Board 2 […]

Why Does Crosby Street Smell So F*&@#$% Bad?

While making a habit of morning workouts at Equinox and SLT (Strengthen Lengthen Tone) [on Crosby Street], I’ve come to learn that Crosby Street gets completely trashed each morning.  Crosby Street smells so f*&@#$% bad! On any other street, strutting around Soho in the morning is one of my favorite past-times.  The streets are desolate, quiet, and make me […]

I met a vegan lifestyle entrepreneur, Tristan Hollingsworth, at an Eva Shaw Designs happy hour in April 2014.  Ever since, I have been thinking that Soho Needs A Raw Vegan Snackery.  (Below are a few pictures from the event…I am in the pink coat!) Calling myself a meat-eater, I was fascinated to learn more about being vegan and […]

Rats! Here There Everywhere In Soho…Not Just Dominique Ansel Bakery

Dear NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), While I hate bringing any more attention to an already over-dramatized situation, I feel the need to write about Dominique Ansel’s current PR nightmare:  it being shut down due to mice.  This is not the fault of a locally owned small business, but a part of […]

It All Started In A Basement…Perfumerie MiN New York

We all know that Soho needs a speakeasy.  After broadening my perspective, I discovered a speakeasy-styled perfumerie this past weekend called MiN New York at 117 Crosby Street.  {Imagine working with a perfume mixologist to determine “your” scent} MiN New York was founded in 1999 by Chad Murawczyk in his parent’s basement when he started importing hair products from all over […]

How Hertz Stole Christmas Eve

The holidays are stressful.  I am originally from Ohio and travel back from Soho for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Christmas flights were quickly ruled out since they were over $600 round-trip (normally they are $180).   Looking for alternatives, I researched the cost of renting a car.  Just like that Grinch that stole Christmas, this is how […]
