Why the Name Lafayette?
Because we love New York, and it's one of our favorite downtown streets!
As most locals know, Lafayette Street actually begins downtown near NYC’s historical City Hall by the Brooklyn Bridge, then continues to run North through several of our favorite neighborhoods — Chinatown, Soho, Nolita, Noho, Greenwich Village, Union Square — turning into Fourth Avenue for a short distance then ultimately into glamorous Park Avenue, where gifting truly is an art form.
This street has for several decades been home to some of the city's most amazing creative names from fashion, music, arts, and film industries. Once home to the first Tower Records, Joe's Pub, and the late great David Bowie. Simply put it has long been a beloved street where creative cultures thrive. And like Lafayette Gifts, it represents the unique combination of history, creativity, culture, and passion for life that is at the heart of New York City.
