Corner (62 Spring St): Spring Street Natural
Restaurant, opened 1973--at this corner
224: Midnight Cafe
222: Au Coin de Feu, French
restaurant whose name means, I think,
"at the fireplace."
218: Was The Falls, notorious bar
where patron Imette St. Guillens was raped and
murdered, allegedly by a bouncer who was told to
take her home. The bar manager, Dan Dorrian, somehow
forgot to tell police that St. Guillens had
left with the bouncer, instead saying she had left
on her own.
Dorrian's family owns the bar, and also
owned Dorrian's Red Hand, the Upper East Side bar
where Robert Chambers met Jennifer Levin before
killing her in Central Park in 1986.
Earlier this space was Oona (1998-99),
Cascabel (1993-98), L'Aubiniere (1991).
This building is owned by John Zaccaro, husband
of one-time vice presidential candidate Geraldine
Ferraro, and serves as the headquarters of his
real estate empire; his associations with mobsters
helped torpedo her national political career.
216: Lafayette Color Lab is in another
212: Soho Eastanah, atmospheric Malaysian
210: One Kenmare Square, which is the
name of this apartment development and not
an actual address. The 2005 building by
Andre Balasz features an undulating facade
of black glass and black brick.
DJ AM, aka
Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his apartment
here in August 2009, reportedly the victim
of a drug overdose.
202 (corner): Beautiful orange-brick
building with charming arches houses Dom's Fine Food,
notable Italian grocery.
