‘Brooklyn Industries’ Ditches SoHo After 14 Years
Brooklyn Industries departed Lafayette Street within the last couple weeks. The exterior flag is gone, and the store is vacant with token butcher paper taped to the windows.
The Brooklyn-based mini-chain was born in the late Nineties, and eventually opened the flagship in 2001. The second store at 290 Lafayette – Manhattan’s first – followed three years later. In the end, the hipster brand ultimately survived fourteen years.
Now, Supreme is probably the last longtime retail stalwart still operating along this stretch of pavement. The skater staple first opened here in April 1994.
