Metropolis Vintage is honored to have our Christmas window captured by James & Karla Murray for their collection of the best East Village storefront windows this year! The Murrays have made their name photographing the changing face of NYC over the past few decades. Check out their photo books for some really cool, old world signage and remnants of old New York!
Here are some of our favorite Christmas window displays around Greenwich Village and the East Village, NYC this year. These are all from small independent businesses! #shopsmall We wish everyone a very happy holiday and a joyous New Year!
Across “the pond” they call them “jumpers”… here they are “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” and are big business…

A staple of the 1990’s, the long sleeved rock shirt adorned many a grunge kid and any skateboarder worth his salt. Lately, this tradition seems to have been taken over by the metal crowd, but we at Metropolis Vintage have been collecting these for some time now and think the public is ready for them once again! We’ve unearthed a huge batch which we’ve just put out on the racks so you can replace the short sleeve version with the longer, winterized model.

“Everybody’s got a Hungry Heart . . .” sang The Boss, in a song he originally wrote for THE RAMONES. However, not every fan has a fine vintage Bruce Springsteen T-Shirt in their hands. Metropolis Vintage has our fair share of tees, with many of Bruce and the E-Street band from their glory days of yesteryear. By the way, the above photo is our pal, Metropolis customer Christy in a shirt she picked up a few days before running into the man himself. Stop by our store, open 7 days a week and you may get just as lucky!
