‘Quinn NYC’ is Ditching its Orchard Street Boutique
Quinn NYC doesn’t have much time left on Orchard Street. The token tombstone signage appeared above the entrance to the boutique last week courtesy of Misrahi Realty.
Apparently, the company is focusing on its new operation at the South Street Seaport. “We have opened a studio experience in The Seaport,” a spokesperson confirms in an email. “Customers will now have the showroom experience here.”
The so-called “luxury lifestyle brand” for women first entered this canyon of hotels four years ago, and nearly outlasted the pitfalls of area development (i.e. the Orchard Hell Building and 196 Orchard condos).
You’ll recall that 181 Orchard Street was previously leased by Skunkfunk for its stateside headquarters. The Spanish-based business eventually closed the Lower East Side outpost in October 2012.
