Burkina Moving Up the Block to First Avenue

Posted on: August 2nd, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Fifteen years of peddling city-branded clothing at 177 East Houston just concluded. Neighborhood tee-shirt outfitter Burkina NYC, established in 1995, shuttered its longtime location over the weekend and is moving a wee bit uptown. All the signage has been pried from the facade while a brick-bolted announcement informs patrons to call for the new address.

We’ll save you the effort; you can thank us later. The urban-inspired Burkina will reportedly reopen for business at the now-dormant 59 First Avenue (at Fourth) by August 15. The owner informed us that the reason for the move was the likely expansion of the neighboring nightlife tenant, Preserve 24. The duplex “Argentinean cafe” failed to sway Community Board 3 in April for a liquor license. If approved next Monday, the twin property combination will likely boast a cafe on the ground level with more formal dining and drinks in the basement. All within a resolution area.
