Castle & Pierpont Closes Shop at 164 Ludlow
The 25-year-old establishment didn’t exactly fit in from the get-go, but that’s partly what makes the Lower East Side tick. Retail diversity. Nevertheless, Little Italy transplant Castle & Pierpont ended operations at 164 Ludlow Street. Its tenure at this address lasted roughly nine months.
This penetrable fortress took up residence in the former Ludlow Guitars space after relocating from Prince Street at the end of last year. Specializing in interior design and floral/garden arrangements, the store always featured an eclectic selection of furnishings and decorations. Just not the right neighborhood market for them.
Castle & Pierpont appears kaput. The official website is bunk and the phone delivers a “full mailbox” message.
