Is the old Ludlow Manor space haunted? After the State Liquor Authority shut down the establishment in 2012, it reopened as the DL. But at last night’s CB3 meeting, board members were shocked to learn that before they could review the DL’s liquor-license renewal, the State Liquor Authority had already approved it. Major backfire: Everyone reacted by complaining about how the Lower East Side club makes the neighborhood a miserable place, and although a vote might not matter, board members denied the motion to renew. This isn’t the first time they’ve fought back. [Bowery Boogie]
