Claw Money Closes Delancey Street Boutique
Street artist Claw Money recently closed down her Delancey Street store. Now encased in plywood shed, the space is undergoing renovation.
And joins the litter of other commercial vacancies at 101 Delancey.
Indeed, the handful of divided storefronts comprising 101 Delancey went under the knife nearly a decade ago, and largely remained dormant. Except for Claw Money, whose vintage boutique began anchoring the southeast corner of Ludlow back in March 2015.
Claw Money (aka Claudia Gold) is a veteran of the street art movement who started painting her signature claw on city trucks and buses in 1992. Ten years later, Gold collaborated with Calvin Klein and Nike to turn her infamous stamp into a logo for apparel.
Gold tells us that the store will rebound on the Lower East Side, albeit in a different location. And that she’s grateful for the years-long support of her now-former landlord.
