Unique Pinback

Before there was American Apparel or Urban Outfitters or Hot Topic, there was Unique - a stand alone giant factory-style warehouse boutique on Broadway where the NYU bookstore is now. To the left, Unique had a huge air-brushing service - specializing in denim jackets, t-shirts and basball cap brims. They sold puffy paint in giant tubes, manic panic, and always had bins of close-out surplus gear.
