On a stretch dominated by commercial businesses, Chrystie Street isn’t really the place for retail operations. As it is, nightlife can barely survive on the stretch between Delancey and East Houston. So, today comes word that eccentric, eighteen-month-old newcomer Buddy Warren is on the outs.

The nascent interior design and furnishing company at 169 Chrystie is now on the open market. The monthly outlay for the 1,400 square-foot space, according to the listing, is $7,744, plus an unspecified lump-sum of key money; the store also includes a mezzanine level. The landlord seeks someone for a seven-year lease, plus a five-year option.

UPDATE: Buddy Warren tells us that this real estate listing was in error. “We found that someone was using pictures of our space to promote their real estate endeavors. All such postings have been removed.” 

Their show “Visible Histories” opens this Friday running through February 21st with 30 artists from the American Association of Abstract Artists downstairs and upstairs an individual show “Waterways” featuring Jim St Clair.

Buddy Warren seized a fraction of the garage space from New Beer Distributors back in early 2014. As a result, half of the longstanding Guiness beer advert was whitewashed. The shop opened its doors in June of that year.
