Art Gotham is the new tenant for the landmarked 4 St. Mark's Place

The upper-level retail space at 4 St. Mark's Place, just east of Third Avenue, is now occupied by the gallery Art Gotham

This will be the second location for the business that started in 2005. Per its website, the gallery represents "early and mid-career contemporary artists. With locations in Soho and the East Village, Art Gotham is dedicated to providing a platform for emerging talent and fostering a vibrant artistic community in New York City." 

The inaugural exhibit, "Rockstart," takes place this Thursday evening from 6-9 ...
There is no word on hours moving forward. The outpost at 478 West Broadway is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The upper level has been vacant since 2019, when Chi Snack Shop and the Imogene boutique closed. Wanyoo, Asia's largest gaming café chain, was at a lower level for a minute but never reopened after the pandemic started in March 2020. A bar-cafe called Lava Ground was the last leaseholder, a business that seemed to be open once every few weeks before disappearing.

Until February 2016, 4 St. Mark's Place housed Trash & Vaudeville for 41 years. The store relocated to 96 E. Seventh St. in 2016.

The Hamilton-Holly House (aka 4 St. Mark's Place), built in 1831, was once owned by Alexander Hamilton's son. The landmarked building, which changed hands for $10 million in the spring of 2016 for $10 million, also underwent a gut renovation and expansion.
