Bouwerie Iconic Magazine Debuts Tomorrow at 215 Bowery

Posted on: January 22nd, 2013 at 6:49 am by


So that large magazine store on the Bowery officially has an identity…and an opening date. Newcomer Bouwerie Iconic Magazine received a throwback exterior dressing late last week, and is on the docket to open tomorrow. Its awning and namesake so obviously evoke the thoroughfare of yore by using the archaic spelling of “Bouwerie.”

The new bodega-slash-newsstand has wall-to-wall racks carrying every publication known to man (likely porn, too). And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a small grocery section of shelves and refrigerators.


Do you think Iconic Magazine is a good addition to the Bowery? And do you think it’ll survive here at 215 Bowery?
