Mess Around Downtown: May 28, 2010


Welcome back to Mess Around Downtown!

Happy summer time Downtowners. Three-day weekends make people happy. So do farmers’ markets, slices of pizza, and lobster rolls. All of those things and then some are what Mess Around is going to tell you about this week. Below are new establishments that opened this past week or are making their seasonal premiere this weekend. You can find anything you need with our handy Downtown Directory. Don’t be afraid to email me at Thanks.


Fulton Stall Market – on South Street b/w Beekman and Fulton

This foodie haven at The Seaport opens it’s season this Sunday, May 30th. It’ll be open Wednesdays and Sundays from noon til 6pm for the season. Swing by to support these local purveyors offering coffee, veggies, cheese, pickles, ice cream, a pack of Etsy artists and more.


Pizza Pizza NYC – 77 Pearl Street: 212-797-9692

A tasty addition to the Stone Street scene.  Thin crusted, freshly baked and served by the slice. Finally, a quality piece of pie in this area that doesn’t require ordering a whole one. But you can order a whole one if you want and have it delivered to your FiDi pad as well. Mmmm, wonder what the Tuesday special Thai Thai tastes like.


Duval Furniture Gallery – 111 Fulton Street: 212-269-4072

With so many people moving in and staying put Downtown these days, it’s only natural that this furniture showroom take a new ground floor space. Stop in to check out their modern selection and eco-friendly options for all of the rooms in your home.


Exchange Cleaners –25 Broad Street: 212-797-1177

It didn’t take long for this new dry cleaner to move into this space at 25 Broad. They’ll take care of all your dry cleaning and tailoring needs.


Ed’s Lobster Bar Cart – 225 Vesey Street, World Financial Center

Ed is setting up his cart behind the Winter Garden for the season. Opening this Saturday, May 29th and serving up everything from lobster rolls to grilled shrimp po’ boys until October.Open daily from 11:30am til dark. Awesome.


T-Mobile80 Nasau Street: 646-662-4020

Welcome to Downtown’s fifth T-Mobile wireless store that opened its doors this week.


By The Way

– A little bird told me that a Chop’t will be moving into the neighborhood. Looks like this leafy green NYC favorite will call 80 Pine Street home. Hooray for salad!
