Saturdays Surf NYC, 31 Crosby St: On first glance, it seems as if this Soho shop has an identity crisis, as it sells surf gear, men’s clothes and books along with coffee. The front of the space is devoted to a rack of surfboards and a coffee bar that sells the shop’s signature blend of La Colombe coffee. Cash only.
The mission of FAB’s ArtUp is to reinvigorate spaces under construction through public art and community partnerships. The long alley way features work by Ellis G, Abe Lincoln Jr and myself. More information is available about the project here. Extra Place is on East 1st Street (btw Bowery & 2nd Avenue), New York City.
