In the News: Working Class for Sale

where in tribeca cerriti 9911 answer••• An ad in the Tribeca Trib says that the Working Class space at 168 Duane is for sale for $3.275 million. And “if you would also like to buy the Working Class brand and shop business that is negotiable.”

••• “The South Street Seaport Museum posted a notice on its website on Friday, April 5 that the galleries at 12 Fulton St. will be closed as of Sunday, April 7 because of Superstorm Sandy-related damage. […] Susan Henshaw Jones [,] Director of the Museum of the City of New York and president of the South Street Seaport Museum, said that the museum is not closing permanently. ‘We are just closing the galleries at 12 Fulton Street, and re-focusing our energies on Water Street,’ she said. She said that 12 Fulton St. has been kept going since Sandy ‘by expensive temporary heat and the building systems all need mega work.'” —NYC Reconnects

••• “Marisa Zanuck could be ditching the California sun to take a bite out of The Big Apple. The Beverly Hills Housewife, who’s married to film producer Dean Zanuck, was spotted looking at swanky apartments in the Soho and Tribeca neighborhoods of Manhattan on April 1, a source tells Celebuzz.”

••• A New York Times article on closets—the Real Estate section must have to cycle through every possible room—includes this: “After Chelsey Ward and her husband bought a three-bedroom co-op in Tribeca, they used one room as a bedroom and one as an office, and hired California Closets to convert the third into a closet for Ms. Ward. ‘Being able to turn a bedroom into a closet in New York City is a little bit like using your whole paycheck to buy a Chanel handbag,’ Ms. Ward observed. ‘It’s a little slice of what it would be like if you had an entire house, or a car and a driveway and a backyard.'” And done right, it can double as a panic room when the revolution comes.



  1. I’m sorry Working Class might be closing, I find it charming and eclectic

  2. I love Working Class. It’s such a quirky store and I always find such interesting finds there.

  3. Don’t leave us, Working Class! It is my favorite neighborhood shop for interesting gifts and beautiful objets. The owner brings back such lovely treasures from his trips abroad to flea markets in England and France. I admire his excellent taste and the thoughtfully edited collection in the store. There’s nothing else like it.
