As many of you may realize by now our location at 16th Street in Union Square has recently moved to a much larger central location at 333 W. 52nd Street. This store has a similar scale to our original Manhattan store at 24th Street with its sprawling first floor and lower level. It is being stocked with signature architectural items from legendary New York City buildings as well as many unique designs and home furnishings perfect for the home or office (and nowadays home office as well!).
We will soon be “open” to the general public and are planning on a Grand Opening on October 2nd. We are planning a sneak peek week starting Friday, September 25th just before our Grand Opening. Just stop by or call for an appointment at 212-989-8814. Of course, this shopping experience will be conducted within CDC guidelines for the safety of both our customers as well as our staff. PPE will be required (face masks) and we’ll have plenty of sanitizing stations throughout the store. Capacity will be limited to ensure a safer and more pleasant shopping experience. Hours of operation will be posted, but for now, we are open every day from 9 am to 5 pm.
The store is stocked with fresh picks as well as a great assortment of what we are notorious for, handmade mirrors and decorative furnishings as well as our line of tables both rustic and elegant. There is much “never seen before” merchandise so come and get first dibs! Our plan is to post these items online soon after our opening in the following weeks.
During these difficult times, it’s a comfort to know OGT is still a staple in New York City. Our commitment is to continue as long as we can find great finds, which doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Keep an eye out, buzz is not lacking at OGT. There are so many story-filled items reclaimed from years gone by. A few samples include: Copper framed mirrors made from windows of prominent skyscrapers such as the Flat Iron Building and 200 5th Ave (formerly the renowned Toy Manufacturers Building which now houses the famous Italian Market: Eataly). Also, marble mantels and original lighting from the Waldorf Astoria can be seen firsthand and so much more.
We look forward to seeing you at the new flagship location, as always expect an exciting experience shopping at one of the most interesting stores in New York City.
