Calling Sister Midnight on Avenue A

A quick follow-up about Black Market, which closed on March 12 after seven years of serving burgers and oysters at 110 Avenue A.

Ownership is apparently revamping the space near Seventh Street... and, based on the new awning that arrived on Thursday, the place will be called Sister Midnight...





Given ownership's affinity for music (both as musicians-producers and other ventures, such as the Bowery Electric and Niagara with the Joe Strummer mural) ... this is likely a nod to Iggy Pop ... (Sister Midnight is the first track, co-written by David Bowie, on The Idiot, Pop's debut solo record from 1977.)

The portion of the awning with Sister Midnight was taped up by the weekend...

Not to be confused with the new spot Sister Jane on 13th St....

EV Grieve, when you say "Ownership" is doing something, is the ownership the same as Black Market?

The owners of Black Market and Sister Midnight are the same.

So they dumped the waitstaff from Black Market rather than switching them into similar jobs at (oh the pretension) Sister Midnight? Nice. Not.

Maybe x amount of Black Market workers will work at this new place.

So "ownership" is Jesse Malin? Gosh remember him when he was just a kid! ⚡️Jet
