After 23 years, Jimmy Jazz is leaving 86 Delancey Street, where it sits next to the even-older Moscot and down the block from a host of chains like Duane Reade and Rainbow. Bowery Boogie reports that the streetwear brand wants to focus on Brooklyn and Harlem, since that's where its clients are. According to employees at the shop, the store was going to stick around until the landlord found a replacement, so something should be coming in soon. Whether it's another chain or some sort of curated high-end boutique, it's going to feel like a bit of a bellwether for the rest of the rapidly-changing LES.
