Blue & Cream has left the Bowery for Bleecker Street

After 15 years on the SE corner of the Bowery at First Street, Blue & Cream has relocated its flagship outpost to 409 Bleecker St. in Greenwich Village.

In a message to patrons, the mid-2000s Bowery gentrifier painted themselves as a trailblazer along this corridor... "before the hotels, museum and galleries popped up."
No word on what might be next for this retail space in Avalon Bowery Place.

Anon @ 9:27 Your high dudgeon is admirable and so very correct.

The New Museum opened there the same year. WTF, they're trying to say they're more culturally relevant than museums?

"We grew a community..."

I seem to remember this store opening with an "art installation" exploiting the patrons of Mars Bar. I believe every business on the block except Chase Bank has closed since this place opened.

Bowery Hotel also opened in 2007. I guess that makes them "original" too.

I never saw this place nor even knew of its existence AT ALL until I read this. They sound remarkably ego-centric & dramatic, though!

I came here for the same comment as 11:12. That whole building is just a big, bland blur. No clue that place was there. Yikes!
