The Leather Zone at 122 Orchard Shutters
It been a rough eight months for the so-called bargain district. Or what’s left of it. Old-time Orchard Street merchants above Delancey were dropping like flies. Especially on the east side of the street, where, since last August, a whopping five stores and one restaurant have shuttered – Giuseppe Uomo at 130, Daniel’s Leather II at 134, Kebab House II at 144, Fashion & Fashion at 160, ZACC Fashions at 164, and S.K. Gift Shop at 190. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s now time to mark the seventh notch on the tally.

The Leather Zone at 122 Orchard Street just recently closed. Its run-down signage and steel awning housing was stripped from the exterior; Misrahi Realty planted its flag, reclaiming the territory.
