PHOTOS: The New Nasty Pig Opens In NYC

Nasty Pig Opening by JJ Keyes06

We snuck in just as partners David Lauterstein and Fred Kearney opened the doors to the new Nasty Pig at 259 West 19th Street in Chelsea. Nasty Pig has been a Chelsea staple over the past twenty years at a time when Chelsea is rapidly de-gaying.

DJ Corey Craig played hits in the back of the shop with nightlife darling Roze Black and an adorable crew of boys from the Nasty Pig team. They’re adding a 12 x 20 deck for shoppers to kick back. With shops in the area like Rainbows and Triangles, Camouflage, and Arcadia Spa & Home closing it’s great to see Nasty Pig replant its roots in the heart of Chelsea… just in time to stock up for the Black Party.

    Zoomorphism is all the rage these days. To me it’s a huge turn off.

  • Dixie Rect

    Real New Yorkers would never wear any of this foolishness – its for tourists only.

    Rowan is so adorable


    Seems to me the brand is veryyyy youth oriented, when we all know the real nasty oigs are the more mature men in Chelsea!!!Too bad, they won’t get any of m family’s business or cash.

    I’m almost 50 years old. U negative commenters need to “pike down” and perhaps, “get a life” . The Nasty Pig clothing is of the most hottest. Be happy to see a long trend to keep the community sexy. And NY’ers will definitely sport the gear; it’s what’s keeping us as the hottest in the world…

    I’m impressed they can afford Chelsea rent to sell colorful nasty pig thongs and baseball caps. There is a reason Chelsea is degaying—cost of living and operating business there has become hetero priced. ;)

  • Wil M.

    Good Point tada-no. We must supprt the gay owned & operated businesses. Without them, we & visitors will complain to having nothing to indulge into, and a degaying process could suppress upon it.

    @Dixie Rect. Thanks for reminding us why a certain type of New Yorkers are so widely disliked, I guess.
