Check In, Swim Out: A Floating Hotel as Art
By MELENA RYZIK
Published: July 10, 2011
As boat christenings go, this one was rollicking. In lieu of a Champagne bottle smashed against a hull, there was late-night bourbon and diving off the roof of the Queen Zenobia into dark waters lighted with natural phosphorescence. Nine strangers in bathing suits floated on an overwhelmed inflatable raft; a couple held hands on a pair of deck chairs; a moose head in a houseboat was decorated with a headlamp and a bra. Though the official ceremony would come later, on Friday night the Boggsville Boatel and Boat-In Theater, New York City’s newest and perhaps loopiest tourist outpost, was open for business.

ART REVIEW | 'ART IN CAMEROON: SCULPTURAL DIALOGUES'
Glimpsing Africa Anew in Its Art

Special Exhibit TIME AGAIN curated by Fionn MEADE

PEACHFROG is the brainchild of sculptor Bill Norton
and inventory liquidator Howard Blumberg, who
combined their skills to create a discount store
that’s custom-fit to Williamsburg.
Norton, who has worked as a steel sculptor, and as the director of
installations at PS1, opened Peachfrog in November
with Howard Blumberg, a professional liquidator.
With more than 20 years in the business, Mr. Blumberg knows
how to find sweet deals that bigger stores overlook. “We’re different
than Marshalls or Syms or even Century 21. Peachfrog,
he explained, zeros in on “voided inventories,” lingo for all the
merchandise that falls through the cracks, which he defines as “store stocks,
samples, odds and ends, returns, irregulars and mixed lots.”
The high-ceilinged showroom used to house a spring-roll factory, and some of its
features have been incorporated into Peachfrog’s design: the changing
rooms are located under the range-hoods of the factory’s former kitchen, and
expanses of bare-brick concrete give the store an industrial, clubbish vibe.
The name Peachfrog refers to a Chinese talisman for good financial fortune
—appropriate for a store that offers so many designer names at 70 to 90 percent
off retail prices. Blumberg’s extensive contacts in the liquidation industry, moreover,
ensure a constant flow of new merchandise and markdowns. A lot of the clothing still
carries original price tags, so customers can see just how much they’re saving.
ALWAYS UP TO 90% OFF RETAIL
