New on Greenwich Avenue
A little more than one third of businesses on Greenwich Avenue between Sixth and Eighth avenues have opened in the past five years. Recently, Gray’s Papaya on Eighth Street at Greenwich and Sixth avenues shut down due to a $20,000 rent increase. A Liquiteria juice shop will open in its place. Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers, which was at 44 Greenwich for nearly 20 years, gave way to a clothing retailer last January. But not all changes are total replacements: An employee at vintage shop Zachary’s Smile at 9 Greenwich Street took over the space last May to give it a new life under the Personnel lifestyle label.
Sky-high for the greater good
Neighborhood church St. Luke in the Fields aims to build a 15-story residential tower in order to fund several of its other projects: An expansion of the church’s private school and the construction of a building that will provide round-the-clock services to LGBT youth. The residence will be located at 100 Barrow Street, which is part of a block that the church owns. Housing here will be split “80/20,” meaning that 20 percent of the 46 homes here will be designated as affordable. The rest will go for market rate.
