It’s been almost a year since upscale consignment shop Second Time Around opened their first UWS store at 2624 Broadway (between 99th & 100th) last October.
They’re now opening a second location a little further south in the neighborhood.
MUW reader Amie H. sent in this photo from 238 W. 72nd (between Broadway & West End).
She reports that workers inside said the store would be opening “sometime in November.”
Second Time Around is a premier consignment company, offering our customers and consignors the best in upscale resale. For over 35 years, we have grown from a single store to 33 boutiques, bringing affordable, high-end style to 12 states.
As the backbone of our mission for upscale consignment, we also want our
consignors to have a quality experience with us. This is why we are one of the only companies to provide online accounts so that each consignor can track their sales in real time.
To maintain our commitment to the finest selection of coveted designer pieces, our trained staff creates an inventory of new and mint-condition pieces to bring an exciting element to every shopping experience. Whether you are looking for an investment piece as a staple to your wardrobe, or you want a dazzling cocktail dress.
I’m not sure if it’s still on or not, but last year there was a reality TV show on Bravo called Fashion Hunters that followed STA’s Nolita sales staff around — here’s the official Bravo site (there doesn’t seem to be a “Season 2″).
This will be STA’s eighth NYC location.
Just a few doors down from STA’s future home lies… The Purple Fig (250 West End).
They have finally reopened.
If you’re a regular reader, you’ve probably seen quite a few posts about TPF here over the past couple of weeks.
I’m still not sure what to make of their long-term prospects, but at least for now they’re open again.
MUW reader Priscilla sent in the photo below noting the restaurant has a “riotous plant display going on.” She also reports the menu has been “much simplified,” with “burgers, roast chicken, salmon, onion soup, shrimp cocktail and the like.”
That matches up with what a hostess told me earlier by phone about some menu changes.
MUW reader Chris e-mailed the other day to say he heard a rumor the restaurant would be reverting back to its previous incarnation as P.D. O’Hurleys.
That doesn’t yet appear to be the case, but it wouldn’t shock me if that eventually happened. As is, the new menu sounds like a move away from the high-end French cuisine that was originally Purple Fig’s focus. And as I posted the other day, reader @ManhattanMingle noticed a bunch of flat-screen TVs being installed last week, which also seems to represent a change in the restaurant’s tone.
To be continued (probably)…
There was an unusual amount of opening/closing news during the day on Friday, so here’s a brief recap if you missed any of that:
Lansky’s Deli was closed for several days after being robbed and completely trashed by vandals ($100K+ in damages & anti-Semitic slurs written on the walls). They finally reopened for business yesterday (Saturday).
The neighborhood has a new frozen yogurt store, as Yapple Frozen Yogurt opened at 2056 Broadway (between 70th & 71st). Anyone stop by for free samples on Friday?
Finally, C. Wonder opened their new 8,000 square foot UWS flagship store at the Time Warner Center this weekend. Anyone check it out?
