Third store opens today in Extra Place

There's some kind of high-end looking furniture-wood shop opening in the corner space tonight at Extra Place...






Meanwhile, seems like a good time to take a quick inventory of Extra Place...

Starting in 1978 (photo via Forgotten New York)...



OK, anyway, as it was first reported back in the spring of 2008, the Avalon Bowery team aspired to turn the cul-de-sac into "a slice of the Left Bank, a pedestrian mall lined with interesting boutiques and caf├ęs."

With the new furniture shop, there are now three storefronts in business... Bespoke Chocolates...



...and Montana Knox ...

Looks as there are 4-5 retail spaces available...




...it feels a little lonely back here...



...not quite yet what the Avalon Bowery folks envisioned with their rendering a few years back...

Extra Place now officially a Dead End

Meanwhile, Extra Place continues to maintain its proud heritage

Perhaps he just saw Extra Place for the first time in 15 years or so?

The Chocolate Wars (well, not at all, but we needed something that sounds CONTROVERSIAL)

Giving Extra Place the warm, comfortable feel of suburbia

Avalon Bowery looks so suburban New South to me that I refer to it as Atlanta-on-the-Bowery.

Ha! Good one, Teri — I have not heard that one...
