In November 2008, the high-end women’s boutique Lolli by Reincarnation moved west from 85 Stanton Street. Other than the addition of “for rent” signs above its entrance, the space remained relatively inactive.  However, we passed by yesterday and noticed a subtle announcement taped in the window.

Guss’ Pickles Moving in Two Weeks

Guss’ Pickles has been eerily quiet recently.  Our last dozen attempts to purchase full sours were met with the stark reality of a roll-down security gate. Alas, their time on the Lower East Side draws nigh.
