Since 2009, the scruffy storefront at 7 Delancey Street has continuously hosted a local car service. Beginning when the Allen Car Service relocated from around the corner (137 Allen). Then, a couple years later, it became Ajay Car-Limo. And, now it’s altogether gone, replaced by the guy next door. Vintage purveyor Brian Procell recently took over the lease to the space, nearly doubling his footprint on Delancey Street. Both spaces are connected by an internal door. This is a big deal for the eponymous shop, which debuted here in December 2012. Apparently, Procell attracts some big names, including models and musicians like Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean. Delancey Street, March 2009 Of the store, he told Daze Digital a couple months ago: As someone who was genuinely interested in all of these influential subcultures I certainly felt like there was a void that needed to be filled. I wanted all of the subcultures to be represented and showcased in a respectful way, by someone who has taken the time to learn about them and live them. That’s what I did with Procell. The store is comprised of a bunch of different collections I’ve amassed since I was 18. We are right where the Bowery starts to meet Chinatown and for me, this area has always been the centre of my NYC life. The Bowery ballroom is across the street where I spent many nights as a teenager going to concerts. Even my first apartment was in this same neighbourhood. It’s a little dirty and is not all glossy and overdeveloped like much of Manhattan, but it’s real NYC.


Each resident at Delancey Street learns 3 marketable skills by working in Delancey Street training schools. These include at least one manual skill, one clerical/computer skill, and one interpersonal/sales skill. For most residents, who have never held a job in their lives, this requirement is as challenging as it is rewarding.


I called Delancey to book a car for 5-6 hours. I agreed to pay an hourly rate for the exclusive use of the car for that time. The car that showed up was flithy. I had lots of appointments and errands to run and several were in midtown. I told the driver I would be an hour or two and that he could grab some lunch. I left some of my belongings in the car while I went to the errands and appointments. When I returned, someone had stolen my cashmere scarf out of the back of the car. Turns out the guy had picked up another passenger while on my dime who had filtered through my stuff and taken what they wanted. When the call was made to complain, the manager was extremely rude and hostile and refused to do anything. I would strongly advise against ever using this service, especially when there are so many others to choose from. I would not give the service any stars but the program has forced me to give one.

I live on the lower east side, alllll they way east, so there are no yellow cabs available. When a car is readily available, everything runs smoothly. The drivers are nice and the cars are nice enough. Prices are reasonable. However, if it's raining or a busy Saturday night, the dispatcher still says ""5 minutes,"" but 5, 10, 15 minutes later, no car. Repeat calls either get another ""5 minutes,"" gets put on endless hold, or get hung up on. Standing outside in the rain, getting hung up and never getting a car service has ruined my plans on more than one occasion, and for the Delancey Taxi gets NO STARS. Would be happy to get a number for another LES taxi if anyone has one!


The vocational training schools, managed and taught by residents themselves, are accredited by the State and award certificates for skills learned. Some of the training schools, such as a restaurant and a moving company, generate funding for Delancey Street that supports the Foundation’s activities. Some of these training schools do not earn income but are central to the basic operation of the organization, for example, accounting, automotive and construction. Current vocational programs include:


The Building Trades offer an important training opportunity for residents. All Delancey Street facilities have been brought up to occupancy standards and building code specifications solely through the efforts of our residents learning construction skills under the direction of residents holding contractors’ licenses. Each of the Foundation’s seven sites reflects architecture unique to its cultural and geographic influences; each has been enhanced through the introduction of improvements (restoration, remodeling, rehabilitation, new construction) conceived and carried out by resident craftsmen. Over 1,000 graduates work in the building trades. Hundreds are general or electrical or plumbing contractors; many more are Building Trade Union members.


I was a long term client of Delancey and called them almost every day to get me to work. The cars varied, and could be nice or a bit dirty-- that didn't bother me that much. And the drivers I found, after long experience, to be mostly pretty good and polite. The Dispatcher, however, is a nightmare, and yells at clients. He's a total jerk, and they won't be getting any more of my money. It is totally unacceptable to yell at clients
