INWOOD – LA FRONTERA – NOSTYLGIA T-SHIRT::AVAILABLE NOW

 

 This Nostylgia design collaboration with yet another talented local artist, Erich Erving, was inspired by 1950’s vintage iron-on graphics that celebrated our original American Frontiersmen like Daniel Boone who forged their way West into a pristine wilderness much like Inwood, symbolically the final frontier of this Manhattan landscape.  Long settled by generations of diverse New Yorkers and most recently known for its rich Latino heritage our Uptown neighborhood is a throwback to a forgotten NYC when neighborhoods were neighborhoods and they had a unimitateable natural pulse of their own.  Nostylgia is proud to call this “Frontera” our home for life, and it is an indelible part of our brand identity. Unlike the American frontier though we aim to retain the natural environment of Inwood and uptown in all its glory. So whether you’re a new or old resident or even just a visitor, stop into Nostylgia to pick up a “La Frontera” T-Shirt and to experience the spirit of Inwood embodied within our store, a unique experience and without a doubt, the best in NYC!

IMPROMPTU ART w/ MR. CHICKENS & ROBOTS – Edward Ubiera

After erasing our incomplete menu at the Inwood Tea Bar and Chess Lounge early in the week, I’ve been pressed to find the time to re-chalk our unabridged offerings list. Our neighborhood buddy and artist Edward Ubiera who you might remember from our Inwood Farmers Market and Wolverine 1000 Mile Collaberation T-Shirts stopped in this morning to check out the 1946’s Sebago Chukkas we posted earlier. He was feeling the creative vibe as always so we let him get busy. Although board space as limited he fit all our teas as best as possible and we plan on expanded to a full wall board soon so Mr. Ubiera can really get wild. Stop in soon to read our menu and try THE BEST TEA IN TOWN!
