Burkina, the "World Famous Hip-Hop Shop" on the Lower East Side is sadly no longer in business.

It was located in this East Houston Street #storefront for 16 years before it was forced to move to First Avenue in 2011, where it remained in business until 2014. We bought many custom designed #tshirts at the store and were sad to see it close. Photo from 2004 appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York".
