History[edit]

Bond Street

The actual namesake of the street is undetermined. It may have been named for city surveyor William Bond, or for a mention in an 1817 guidebook referring to Broadway as "The Bond Street of New York".[3]

24 Bond Street was the location of Beatrice and Sam Rivers' studio RivBea[4] and of Robert Mapplethorpe's first studio.[5] Mile End Sandwich, a spin-off restaurant of Mile End Delicatessen, the Jewish deli in Brooklyn, is located on Bond Street between Bowery and Lafayette Street.[2] More recently, Bond Street became the location of stores for Billy Reid[6] and Drake's OVO Clothing clothing brand.
