259 Bowery Now For Lease

Posted on: October 8th, 2010 at 6:14 am by

After news broke yesterday about the departure of York’s Shona Gallery from 1 Prince Street, another upper Bowery vacancy is currently in the works.  Indeed, it didn’t take too long for the leasing signs to appear at 259 Bowery in the wake of the Sperone Westwater Gallery inauguration last month.

After all, a modest restaurant supply company in spitting distance couldn’t be expected to survive the onslaught. Even though transactions inside New York Equipment only recently ceased, the business long suffered beneath the scaffolding from next door.  At the moment, the interior is completely empty, save for a few scattered items. We might need to dust off the Magic 8 Ball again to help determine the heir to the throne, as it were.

Prior to supply, 259 Bowery housed a specialty record store called Satellite Records.  They featured a deep selection of house and techno vinyl, and DJ equipment up until closing in 2008. The online business is still operational, though.
