|Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery - May Newsletter 2012
We have missed you all so much, so Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery has decided to jump back into retail.
We opened a Pop Up Shop in the fantastic vintage store “Ellen”, located at 123 Ludlow Street, New York, NY 10002, in Manhattan’s trendy Lower East Side (LES). We've got your hats for city adventures, the beach, and those upcoming Summer parties.
For those who are unfamiliar with the LES we've put together three walking tours and a list of fun local places to visit. Come on over, hat it up, and style your way around the LES.
Please note that we are no longer at the Spring Street address!
Walking Tour #1 - FUN FOOD FESTIVAL
Take the F-train on the New York City subway to Second Avenue stop, leave the station on the 1st Avenue exit, cross East Houston Street/Allen Street towards “Katz’s Delicatessen” - this is Ludlow Street. Follow Ludlow two blocks south to the Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery Pop Up Shop at 123 Ludlow Street.
Try on fedoras in unusual shapes for sun protection while you proceed on your food sampling walk.
Follow Ludlow down to Delancey Street, make a left and walk east to Essex Street, and then look for Essex Market, the oldest indoor food market in the city. Remember that Dina Washington song about the Pushcarts? This is where they were relocated to in the Sixties. This building has become a lab for small food businesses. Visit “Essex Fromaggio” for small lots of olives, spices from the far corners, and real Italian pastas. Enjoy samples of delicious cheeses that are hand crafted in the New York area at the much acclaimed “Saxelby Cheesemongers”. Enjoy the chumminess of the Dominican grocer who sells mangoes, papaya, tamarind, and flan. If you are still hungry, leave the market and walk a few blocks down to “Falai Bakery” at the corner of Clinton Street and Rivington Street. Enjoy delicious lunch with the superb Italian pastries for dessert.
Walking Tour #2 - THE HISTORY LESSON
Take the F-train on the New York City subway to Second Avenue stop, leave the station on the 1st Avenue exit, cross East Houston Street/Allen Street towards “Katz’s Delicatessen” on the corner of Ludlow Street. Follow Ludlow two blocks south to the Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery Pop Up Shop at 123 Ludlow Street.
Try on beautiful, feminine, big brim hats for visits to Coney Island and Far Rockaway.
Follow Ludlow to Delancey Street, cross it and make a right over to Orchard Street and the “Lower East Side Tenement Museum”. Take the museum’s tour and feel lucky that you have your own bathroom. Afterwards walk north on Orchard Street, make a right on Rivington Street and on across Essex Street until you arrive at “Schiller’s Liquor Bar” on the corner of Norfolk Street. Enjoy a delicious lunch.
Walking Tour #3 - NIGHTCLUBBIN'
Take the F-train on the New York City subway to Second Avenue stop, leave the station on the 1st Avenue exit, cross East Houston Street/Allen Street towards “Katz’s Delicatessen” - this is Ludlow Street. Follow Ludlow two blocks south to the Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery Pop Up Shop at 123 Ludlow.
For your shopping convenience we will be open on most Thursdays until 9 PM (with the exception of May 24, when we will be closing at 6:45pm). Try on gorgeous fascinators.
Walk down Ludlow across Delancey Street to Broome Street, make a right onto Broome, proceed to “The Ten Bells”, enjoy excellent Spanish and Portuguese wines. When done follow Ludlow back north until Stanton Street and to the “Stanton Social” towards the left, walk upstairs and enjoy a fruity cocktail. Afterwards proceed to “Hotel on Rivington”, take the elevator up one flight and enjoy the private bar with a pool table. If still in the mood or hungry, go to neighborhood mainstay “The Pink Pony" on Ludlow, or one of the many bars and restaurants of the LES for a late night snack.
