Community 54 Relocates to Avenue B After Being Pushed Out of Clinton Street

When Community 54 was forced from its digs at 54 Clinton Street back in January, partners Daymon Green and Jason Jacobs left a playful farewell that said only “gone fishing.” Well, it looks like the six-month-long trip at sea is over. A giant banner hanging from the former HQ indicates that the popular streetwear company has just relocated to Alphabet City (186 Avenue B).

Community 54 fell victim to the same forces of greed as address mates WD-50 and Rothstein’s Hardware. It was their departure that led to the initial report that seven stories of luxury living would rise at 50-62 Clinton in the near future. Even though the new development is still very much in its infancy, the low-rise strip of properties is already on the open market, as previously reported.

WD-50 will close for good at the end of November.
