Williamsburg restaurant Isa has closed


We can’t say we’re surprised. Isa never could seem to get it together. Eater reports that they have indeed shuttered:

From day one, Isa was committed to being weird — it was gleefully out of step with the rest of the trendy restaurant pack in terms of design, cuisine, and branding. The menu looked like a 90s punk music zine. [Read more...]

How to Get Great Furniture on a Budget (It’s Easier Than You Think!)



Living and working in New York gets expensive fast, and unless you were born with a major trust fund, you know you need to live on a budget. Most of the time, that’s no big deal. Right up until you move, that is.

Then all bets are off as you scrape together first and last month’s rent, a security deposit and cash for a moving van to haul all your stuff to your new pad. Good luck having anything left over to make your new place nice and comfortable — that new couch will have to wait another year. Or will it?  [Read more...]

Greenpoint will soon have its own BMW-owned, tech-brotastic, start-up incubator / “world class” restaurant / asshat palace



As we reported last year, the space that used to host the Brooklyn Night Bazaar was purchased by BMW.  As details emerge about what BMW plans to do with the 23,000 square-foot warehouse, we’re beginning to think an automotive showroom would’ve been preferable. Reporters talked to the designer, Nate Pinsley, about the space and it sounds, well, just horrible. As DNA reports, its going to be called A/D/O — awkward shorthand  for the already-pretentious Amalgamated Drawing Office — and it will be a “place for design professionals to work, develop and play.” Ugh. You just know there’s going to be skateboard racks. Gothamist has more:

In fact, the BMW-owned MINI is building a 23,000 square-foot restaurant / retail design store / co-working space that the company hopes will become a “hotbed for future ideas and innovation.”
It’s called Amalgamated Drawing Office, which is “an homage to the team that designed the first MINI,” according to Nate Pinsley, ADO’s managing director. The warehouse’s renovations are being designed by nARCHITECTS and ADO is scheduled to open late this summer. [Read more...]

There was a huge pot bust in Greenpoint over the weekend


Meanwhile, we keep forgetting it hasn’t been legalized. From Gothamist:

400 pounds of beautiful-looking marijuana was seized by the NYPD in a big Greenpoint drug bust this week. First 300 pounds of the mouth-watering weed was discovered in a container that two men allegedly picked up at ABF Freight on the banks of Newtown Creek in East Williamsburg on Wednesday. They then allegedly drove it to 234 Java Street in Greenpoint, where officers acting on a search warrant found another 100 pounds of herb that will never find a good home. [Read more...]
