Outer Corner 2BR w/Balcony!
Some big news from Katz’s Deli this morning. Co-owner Jake Dell just sent along word that the legendary restaurant at the corner of East Houston and Ludlow streets has “a deal in place for the sale of (its) air rights.” Here’s a bit more detail from Dell:
More to come as soon as we learn more information. Dell said details of the deal cannot be disclosed, at least not right now.
UPDATE 11:19 a.m. A few (very few) details based on a phone conversation with Jake Dell. We asked what kind of deal had been made with the mystery buyer — Is it possible that the current single-story structure will be demolished and replaced with a new tower (with Katz’s on the ground floor)? — Or have the air rights been purchased so that they can be transferred to an adjacent lot?

The Michael Brown shooting in Missouri, the Staten Island police brutality controversy and the war in Gaza are just some of the events weighing heavily on many people. Gary Weingarten, co-owner of Lower East Side bar Verlaine, decided to make a statement about what’s happening on the roll-down great outside his 13-year old Rivington Street establishment.
