Put yet another nail in the coffin of what was once the East Village's strangest street: Trash & Vaudeville, the punk-rock haven that's occupied 4 St. Marks Place for more than 40 years, will officially move to its new digs next month. The shop announced on Instagram (h/t DNAInfo) that its final day on St. Marks will be February 29.
The shop's move, to a space just around the corner on East 7th Street, has been in the works for some time. But once the building it's currently located in (a 1831 Federal townhouse that once belonged to Alexander Hamilton's son) hit the market last year, the timeline for the shift was bound to be sped up a bit. The house was originally listed for $11.9 million, but according to Eastern Consolidated, which is handling the sale, it's now asking $10.5 million.
Hey Ho Lets Go... to 96 East 7th street! After over 40 years at 4 saint marks place, Trash & Vaudeville will be relocating to 96 East 7th street between 1st Avenue and Avenue A (just a few blocks away!) We'll be on Saint Marks till Feb 29th. We would love to see you here before we move and we look forward to seeing you on 7th street in early March! We'll keep you updated with confirmed dates.
