Back in November, barely two years out of the gate, the flagship Alternative Apparel store on Lafayette Street was sidelined by a fire on the first level. Corporate assured the community that the retail shop would reopen at some ambiguous future date. It wasn’t clear whether it would. Until last week.
Yep, Alternative Apparel came through on its promise, and has since reopened at 281 Lafayette. Mannequins are already dressed in the windows for your pleasure.
As for the “Let’s Dance” David Bowie memorial that appeared in the wake of his death, it’s staying for now. The artist formerly lived two doors down at 285 Lafayette Street, and grief-stricken fans have been leaving trinkets ever since the main tribute was deposed.
