97 Allen Street certainly cleaned up its act within the last year.

The Y.S. Tires sidewalk mechanic quietly disappeared without anyone really noticing. Truly the last of its kind in this neck of the woods, it was always great eye candy to watch the workers here hustle to swap tires while traffic barreled down Allen Street. Behind musty windows were stacks and racks of tires alongside greasy equipment. The shop had been threatened since as early as 2010 when the landlord began listing the space for rent.

Now this narrow northern store is a more sanitized urban menswear boutique called The Good Company. Having soft opened a few weeks ago and now in full rotation, it joins another recent newcomerThe Michael Foley Gallery – at the same address. The brand focuses on “stocking contemporary clothing, books, accessories and lifestyle products.”
