Guerra Paint is now closed ahead of move to Williamsburg

After 37 years in the East Village, Guerra Paint & Pigment Corp. has closed up shop at 510 E. 13th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B ahead of a move to Williamsburg.

As we first reported earlier this month, their building has a new landlord and "a triple net lease with untenable terms." 

This week, Guerra Paint moves the retail operation to its Williamsburg warehouse at 21 Wythe Ave. between N. 14th and N. 15th streets. They expect to be open on May 31.

Guerra Paint wrote in an Instagram post announcing the last day: "We will miss you, East Village!"

Founder Art Guerra passed away in May 2021. He was 81.

I have not a doubt in Hell that the landlord is eying this space as a bar.

A huge loss. They’ll be very much missed.
