Last November we were looking for another new location to bring Artist & Craftsman's signature charm to New York City, and we found the perfect place in Long Island City. Located at 34-09 Queens Blvd, this 89 year old building is the former location of a Breyer's Ice Cream factory.


For several weeks A&C worker bees have been adding our own stylistic flourish to this delicious 10,000 sq.ft. space, sprinkling A&C magic on everything from the walls to the floors and even the shelving. We even scooped up some space on the giant billboard atop the building, which some may recognize as the shape of Breyer's iconic leaf logo.


Soon we'll start moving in products and training our new staff. We can't wait to start serving up some sweet arts & crafts treats from our new home in Long Island City
