Bettie Page Boutique Opening at 303 Bowery

Posted on: November 16th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

A high-end boutique inspired by the styles of pin-up seductress Bettie Page inked a ten-year lease at 303 Bowery last month. The new location marks the eleventh for Tatyana Designs’ Bettie Page brand. This glassy storefront, housed beside Blue & Cream in the Avalon Bowery, was previously occupied by Misha Nicole.

303 Bowery, situated in the “hottest, most trendsetting part of New York,” represents the area flagship for the brand. All signage or evidence of the predecessor is now gone, with build-out/assembly already underway for Bettie Page. Scheduled opening is November 26.

Meanwhile, the broad-strokes babble written by the Vegas-based company is salt in the wound.

Located at the trend setting Manhattan address of 303 Bowery Street, the NYC store is in the heart of ”The Bowery.” One of the oldest streets in Manhattan, The Bowery encompasses a narrow strip of Manhattan between Cooper Square and Chatham Square. A neighborhood experiencing rapid gentrification, its juxtaposition of old and new is a microcosm of the melting pot that is New York City. Neighboring stores to the new Bettie Page Boutique include a new John Vivatros, Patagonia, Anthropolgie and Patricia Fields (The stylist for Sex and the City).

Creepy. Cold. Intense. Haunted. All apt adjectives to describe the unused section of Ellis Island designated as ruins. It is on the south side of this national park – straddling the state lines of New York and New Jersey – that a maze-like collection of twenty-nine buildings sits. Rotting away from the inside out. Indeed, […]

Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street. It was to be a place more approachable than the OG spot. Those plans ultimately hit a dead-end (F18 Gallery opened there instead), though, and owners Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von […]

Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]
