In November of last year, St. Mark’s Place lost a most esteemed local business. East Village Shoe Repair closed suddenly and without warning, leaving many customers scratching their
feet heads. EV Grieve reported that a city marshal seized the store.
But the sole men have found a new home…
Loyal patrons will be stoked to learn that East Village Shoe Repair has since resurfaced in Bushwick (natch). Boogie reader and Centre-fuge co-creator Pebbles Russell tells us that the new iteration opened at last month at 1083 Broadway. Yet, while the news is certainly rosy, the location is quite the distance from their namesake neighborhood. (Their name has not changed, by the way)
The East Village Shoe Repair shop began life in the wedge of a store at 1 St. Mark’s Place back in 1994.
