An Update on 334 Bowery
Exactly one year ago, Vbar was trying to open another outpost in 334 Bowery, former home of Bowery Tattoo. The proposal had building residents understandably upset. But in the end, those plans fell through, and aside from a transient sample sale this past weekend, the storefront has maintained a steady vacancy streak; Vbar eventually settled for a spot on St. Mark’s Place.
Which brings us to this recent real estate listing for the property.
Notwithstanding the ridiculous monthly rent of $14,999, there are two major issues with the Craigslist real estate listing (via NYCRS). Firstly, in a blatant disregard for reality, the image was purposely (and poorly, we might add) photoshopped to erase the old signage. Heaven forbid prospective renters knew that this was once a neighborhood tattoo parlor. After all, this is Bowery 2.0, where only shi-shi boutiques and upscale drinking establishments rule.
Secondly, the Bowery is not a street! We’ve been over this before, and even Cemusa corrected its mistake.
