The ‘264 Tailor Shop’ is Closing After 25 Years on Broome Street
The unassuming tailoring business at 264 Broome Street is shutting down operations. The eponymous shop has been on the block – near Allen Street – for more than twenty-five years.
The first indication of demise was the handwritten sign in early-December that announced the cessation of dry cleaning services by month’s end. Now that the new year is here, ownership taped up a second announcement saying that the shop is closing down permanently.
As the only tailor serving the area blocks south of Delancey Street, many will see this as a tough loss.
264 Tailor was founded in 1992 at its namesake address.
There are still several neighborhood tailor shops from which to choose, most residing within the confines of Hell Square. Most reputable, of course, is the Stanton Tailor Shop, owned and run by Pablo Vargas.
