Claw Money Boutique on Delancey Street Temporarily Closed for Storefront Renovation

The storefront renovation of 101 Delancey has been ongoing for months. Since at least last summer, when the first plywood encasements first made a cameo. Now that same job just sidelined the Claw Money graffiti style boutique at the corner of Ludlow Street. Temporarily, we’re told.
“[The landlord] is just changing the front facade,” Ms. Money (aka Claudia Gold) tells us. “We should be open next week.” Her token “claw” plywood paintings also promise the return. So, there you have it.
Other than Claw Money as of April 2015, not much of substance has really taken hold here at 101 Delancey since the building changed hands. Twice since 2012, in fact. Silvershore Properties snapped up the tenements in 2012 for $7 million, then flipped it two years later and sold to Lionstone Capital for $17.3 million. The real estate speculation killed off the few small businesses operating here, including the original Happiness Deli.
