ONLY NY Opening Store at 176 Stanton Street

Posted on: October 5th, 2012 at 6:45 am by

Pop culture crowned 176 Stanton Street as a signficant Lower East Side landmark. After all, it was in this tenement building that Lady Gaga lived before hitting the big time. While fans flock here on the reg, the ground level retail hasn’t had much success of late. Stuffed Artisan Cannoli closed in September 2011, leaving the shutters locked for much of the year. A retail replacement is on the way, however, and one likely familiar to those who cherish street apparel. Its progress here has flown way under the radar until now.

ONLY NY, whose stickers are ubiquitous in this neighborhood, is slated to open within the next few weeks. The large room provides ample space to peddle their popular tees, hats/beanies, and sweatshirts.

176 Stanton marks the first brick-and-mortar location for ONLY NY. Until now, the six-year-old brand offered appointment-only “office hours” at its west side HQ. The boutique joins a host of likeminded establishments within a three-block radius, including Rocksmith, A-Life, and Community 54.
