Almost a year of closure speculation proved positive for 20 Peacocks on Clinton Street. At the beginning of 2013, numerous real estate listings for the space surfaced on Craigslist. Word at the time was that the boutique was on a month-to-month lease and was being shopped around for $6,500 per month. But owner vehemently denied the situation. Looks like it’s true after all…
As of a couple weeks ago, the trendy store, which specializes in menswear, is on the outs. For real this time. A leasing sign above the doorway of 20 Clinton gives it away. Apparently the rent on the space is skyrocketing, and the boutique can no longer maintain. We are told 20 Peacocks is on the lookout for some new office space. In the meantime, there’s a deep discount on their product.
It was January 11, 2012 when previous owner Mehdi Kabbaj hailed a cab uptown after a night of drinking on Avenue B. Bumper-to-bumper traffic near 96th Street on the FDR drove him to leap from the taxi announced. A Toyota Sienna minivan struck and killed him.
