The Ainsworth, a sports lounge at 122 West 26th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues, is opening its doors. Midtown is getting the new Distrikt Hotel at 342 West 40th Street, in between Eighth and Ninth avenues. It will begin welcoming guests in the fall.

Patsy’s Pizzeria has signed a lease for space at 1279 First Avenue on the corner of 69th Street; the Center for Holistic Health and Wellness penned a lease at 155 West 19th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues; and the Studio Group signed for a spot at 330 West 38th Street between eighth and ninth avenues, according to a press release from Citysites Commercial Group.

In Brooklyn, Park Slope saw the Little Buddy Biscuit Company open its doors at 635 Fifth Avenue on the corner of 18th Street.

Greenwich Village restaurant Elettaria is closing today, at 33 West 8th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues. After 26 years in Soho, Agnes B. closed its doors at 103 Greene Street between Spring and Prince streets. Marc Ecko Cut & Sew has closed its doors at 147 Eighth Avenue on the corner of 18th Street. Reports indicate that Ricky’s will open a Halloween store there. Whole Earth Bakery at 130 St. Marks Place near Avenue A has remained closed for renovations, past its expected reopening date of Aug. 18. The Jersey Shore Store, an interactive storefront the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism launched to encourage New Yorkers to visit, temporarily closed its doors in July. But now the store’s closure on Broadway between 11th and 12th streets appears as though it might not be so temporary — the spot has yet to reopen.
