Another Lower East Side longtimer just bit the dust.
Once the seven-story luxury condo development at 50 Clinton Street entered the picture, it was only a matter of time before some of the mom-and-pop shops on the block foundered. Especially those directly in line of sight. Today’s obituary is for Clinton Furniture and Mattress.
This for-locals mattress store had been serving the community at 61 Clinton Street for well more than a decade. And continually proved resilient in the face of ongoing gentrification. The battle is over, though, marked with tombstone leasing signage.
Now the dual-store space is likely pitched as some “prime” opportunity for nightlife. Or something else that caters to those buying multi-million-dollar condos across the street.
