Info: Nestled right in the center of New York City’s eclectic East Village, this location is surrounded by cozy cafes such as Honey Haus and The Bean, and a short distance away from NYU, Cooper Union, and The New School. Be sure to check out cultural landmarks such as St. Mark’s Place and New York’s oldest tavern McSorley’s. In its heyday, legendary punk club CBGB’s was located just a short walk away in the historic Bowery district. Stretching from Third Avenue to the East River in Manhattan, the East Village has continuously been an artistic hub in New York City – from the early theater district days, to the migration of the Beatniks in the 50s, to Andy Warhol’s infamous art films in the 60s and the punk movement in the 70s. Today, the store attracts the true inhabitants of this unique New York neighborhood; artists, models, stylists, and musicians all come to sell and shop, showcasing an array of unique and original pieces. You can find everything from great vintage pieces from decades past, to fast-fashion styles that can be found in your favorite stores today.
