2nd Street, a second-hand clothing shop based in Japan, is opening an outpost at 712 Broadway just south of Astor Place at Washington Place. (Thanks to Majorie Ingall for the photo and tip!)
This marks the brand's first East Coast outpost after opening a handful of buy-and-sell shops in the Los Angeles area.
Per the 2nd Street website:
Better than brand new, here at 2nd Street, find one-of-a-kind pieces in premium, second-hand condition with so much to choose from. We have truly unique items that can’t be found just anywhere, for great value.
Originally from Japan, we have over 500 stores across Japan that regularly get our inventory from to keep you on-trend and always in something new.
The shop is opening right next door to the newish location of Buffalo Exchange to make for a mini resale thrift row.

Wow people are so vein that the market for second-hand is gigantic. Big enough for a Japanese retailer to look at NYC rental prices and say yeah, we can bring in clothing.
I think buying second hand is great for recycling. I say support local second-hand before commercial retail. Though I know how difficult that is, if you need your Starbucks.
hooray! we need more decent second hand stores and less fast fashion in this city!
