When Hurricane Sandy hit lower Manhattan last year, ONLY NY’s crew was busy preparing to open their flagship store in the flood-zone on the Lower East Side. Luckily, the store survived undamaged and opened to the public a few weeks later. Tucked away at 176 Stanton Street, the spot is flourishing and filled to the brim with everything from tees, hats and backpacks to skate decks, art supplies and even lighters, many emblazoned with some iteration of the ever-shifting ONLY NY logo. We met up with store manager Jordan Foster for a tour of the shop. For more on ONLY NY, read our profile of the designers from last year.
