A long-dormant storefront across the street from Fort Greene Park has finally found a tenant.
Corridor, a men’s clothing brand founded in 2014 by former FBI employee Dan Snyder (and named after the Northeast Corridor), has opened up a shop at 165 Dekalb Avenue, right next door to the popular restaurant Walter’s.
They specialize in “New American sportswear” that combines stiff, preppy stylings and workwear-adjacent staples. The clothing is produced in certified ethical factories in India, according to their website.
This is the brand’s second currently open brick-and-mortar in New York City, joining their space at 245 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan. Corridor also has two pop-up shops, the first in Boston and the second in Los Angeles. They formerly had a store located at 103 North 7th Street in Williamsburg, which closed in the last year.
The Dekalb space was formerly home to Sammy’s Gourmet Deli, which shut in 2016 after the building was purchased by Chuie Zhou in 2015 for $2.5 million. It sat vacant for the next five years.
Corridor joins home goods store Clic among the new arrivals from Manhattan that are opening new shops in Fort Greene.
