Salon 94 Bounces from the Bowery

Posted on: November 11th, 2020 at 5:02 am by

When an art gallery set foot beneath the Sunshine Hotel flophouse on the Bowery, it represented another milestone in the hyper-gentrification of the ancient thoroughfare. A decade on, however, the showroom is gone.

Salon 94 is no longer on the Bowery, having vacated its perch at the corner of Stanton Street. Instead, leasing signage holds court.

The gallery is currently in the process of moving to the Upper East Side.

Despite the closure, though, original location and Salon 94 Freemans remain operational.

Gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn opened this third outpost of Salon 94 in late 2010, three years after debuting on the Lower East Side with a spot in Freemans Alley. Designed by Rafael Vinolybmade, it made waves at the time with its ten-foot jumbo screen, which projected art visuals.
