    Anybody know if there’s a story behind the “lapsing” of Noodle Pudding’s liquor license? I went this past Sunday night and it’s definitely not the same without the crowded bar and $17 bottle of house red – wondering if there was an infraction/punishment or if they simply forgot to renew it as one of the waiters claimed.

    Here’s the 1940 tax photo of 9 Cranberry Street. The wall on the left is now a garage:

    I find it hard to believe that they would have forgotten something so vital to their business like a liquor license.

    There’s probably nothing more interesting than they forgot to do all the bureaucratic steps to renew on time. The license has to be renewed every 2 years and in NYC, bars and restaurants have to notify their local community boards 30 days before applying for renewal. Hope they get the renewal soon!

  • Cranberry Beret

    The community board goes on vacation for July and August so if you have a summer renewal and can’t push it through early, you’re stuck waiting ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I walked by today, was told that they hadn’t completed the necessary paperwork in time, but were working on it.

    Can we talk about the ‘down’ escalator at High St (A/C) station. It’s out yet again..they rebuilt the thing not that many years ago. It’s amazing that the other 2 escalators are incapable of being reversed to at least have one down escalator functioning. I guess the same company that did the elevator work at Clark St lol.

    OH do I agree with you…. And what’s worse – each station has a “station manager,” a former token booth attendant who maxed out at $70K or so salary, so the union got the City to create a “career path.” CAN YOU IMAGINE what the job description looks like? Is it so very complex that s/he can’t throw a switch when this all too frequent malfunction happens? … I get that if there were only one, it should go UP, but even NYC could not be so inept as to have ordered unidirectional escalators.

    The bar is OPEN!!! Let’s all stop by and help ‘em (and us) make up for lost drinks!😁
