A longtime home of curiosities and misfits going retail on 7th Street

A retail space for lease sign recently went up in the front window at 102 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue. 

The listing via Meridian Capital Group isn't online just yet. 

This retail conversion brings an end to the space serving as a residence. Anthony Pisano lived in this converted storefront full of antiques and whimsical curiosities for nearly 40 years. He died in 2018 at age 86. Check out some interior pics from his home here.  

There was also this short film about Pisano's home...


Not sure who lived here most recently. There were vintage Playboys in the window... and a cat tower with some sleepy kitties. The resident(s) vacated the place in the spring... leaving behind a Misfits Mansion painting...
As writer Jeremiah Moss noted about this space in an Instagram post: "When all the misfits are gone from the East Village, there will be nothing but white hats and White Claws."

102 E. 7th St. is now for rent

A for rent sign is now on the storefront at 102 E. Seventh St. between First Avenue and Avenue A.

The listing for this Steve Croman-owned space isn't online just yet at Meridian Retail Leasing.

This arrival marks the end of Comparti New York — "a full-service catering and events resource" — in this space.

Before Comparti we had the tapas bar XyZ Pintxos y Botanas. Previously there was Tink's Cafe. And because someone will bring it up... some years back the storefront was the boutique Body Worship with the stainless-steel penis as a door handle.
