76 East Houston Street
New York City, NY 10012
The strange green tent that has been at 76 East Houston Street since 1986 is the last eclectic antique and prop store on the Bowery. Billy's first incarnation was called Lot 76.In those days the Bowery was like the Wild West. Only the adventurous came downtown. The tent has provided countless objects to thousands of New Yorkers. All walks of life have passed through the doors: movie stars, rock stars, artists, junkies, hookers, gangsters entrepreneurs, hipsters, and today there is a new breed on the Bowery; the metro-suburbanites.
