Chloe Sevigny’s Designer Is Moving Out

The designer who outfitted Chloë Sevigny’s apartment as well as her brother’s club, the Beatrice Inn, is moving to bigger digs in the East Village.

According to a Craigslist posting, David Cafiero’s art gallery and home goods store, Cafiero Select, will soon vacate its East Sixth Street location near Cooper Square. The post advertises two side-by-side storefronts, each “325 square feet with painted exposed brick walls and 11′ ceilings”: one is going for $2,800 per month and the other for $2,750.

It won’t be part of the wave of furniture-shop closings in recent months. Mr. Cafiero said the store was moving to a bigger, better space in the neighborhood. He declined to go into detail.

Good morning, East Village.

On Sunday, about 250 participants (by EV Grieve’s estimate) marched to promote “dialogue, solidarity and solutions to corporate control of our food system,” according to a flyer.

The Times reports that Billy’s Antiques, the tent near the corner of Bowery and Houston that has been stocked with oddities and ephemera since 1986, will close so that its landlord can start construction on a two-story building. Billy Leroy, the tent’s “Barnumesque” owner, will be allowed to reopen in the new building, but a member of his staff considers the closure “part of that final transition to a landscape of Pottery Barns and Starbucks.”
