NewYorkology brings word that architectural salvage store Olde Good Things is coming to Union Square. The shop, which carries such amazing oddities as this half-century old 300-foot stained glass window from JFK airport, plans to open a location at 5 East 16th between Broadway and Fifth within the next two weeks.
Olde Good Things also has a Chelsea showroom that should stay open for the time being (it's on a month-to-month lease.) The new space will have a slightly more upscale feel than the Chelsea spot, with a bigger focus on furniture. We're assuming this explains why they had a truck loaded with strange and wondrous objects parked around Union Square in early May—and sort of hoping it'll become a regular fixture.
