The Day | A Few Comings and Goings

Everyones A WinnerRachel Citron

Good morning, East Village.

We begin the week with a look at some local restaurant comings and goings. Orologio said goodbye to the neighborhood yesterday with a farewell Sunday brunch and with a little thank you to it’s loyal patrons. EV Grieve reported the restaurant’s listing on the market back in December, and since then, Eater NY has chimed in with a note that The Beagle, a restaurant with a controversial menu, will take its place on 162 Avenue A.

Grieve also notes that 14-16 Avenue B at East Second Street is still up for grabs on the market after plans to open up a 3,000-square-foot Italian restaurant, catering company and lounge were nixed by Community Board 3.  Now the space has a brand new listing and it looks like the landlord may be hoping for a new nail salon to hit the block.

In other neighborhood news, DNAinfo reports that Lower East Side and East Village schools look to be among the hardest hit by possible layoffs of city teachers – roughly 10 percent of the teachers in the neighborhood could be affected.

As for today’s weather? Keep an umbrella handy because The Weather Channel predicts light rain throughout the day and potentially some thunder. But at least there are a few sunny, but cold, days coming our way for the rest of the week.
