“The burgeoning art gallery scene on the L.E.S. is not showing any signs of slowing down — if anything, it feels like it’s speeding up. Three new arrivals – Garis & Hahn (263 Bowery), Shin Gallery (322 Grand St.) and Sasha Wolf Gallery (70 Orchard St.) have opened their doors in the last month.” [The Lo-Down]

The Bowery Mission has launched a #NoMildWinter campaign to raise awareness for homelessness. [Bowery Mission]

“From the team at Openhouse Gallery and Nom Wah Tea Parlor, OBS is a (somehow) bright, airy room settled into an abandoned Bowery subway station that’ll rotate popups pumping out dishes from a wide-open kitchen.” [Thrillist]

“The proprietors of Joe’s Pizza on Carmine Street are opening a new location in the 14th Street space that most recently housed Naked Pizza. Nobody liked that place. The drunk NYU kids wouldn’t even take that bait, and it sits right next to their dorm. This is a real trade-up.” [Eater]

Warhol legend Taylor Mead is one of the few people remaining in his building, according to Clayton Patterson: “The whole place is a construction site with all the expected noise, dust, obstacles, worker traffic, open doors, coldness and activities that come with construction.” [The Villager]

“At Han Joo, each tabletop grill uses infrared heat to cook everything to an eerie evenness. You miss the drama, but it’s hard to argue with results.” [NY Times]
