In 2009, an important piece of Rye history, the Arcade Building, came up for sale. It was auctioned off by the estate of the Pulvermann family who had owned it since 1909, the year it was built. Interest among potential buyers was high. The House of Hanover, LLC, purchased the century-old building at 15-17 Purchase Street that fall.
Plans for renovation and restoration of this Rye classic were put in place right away. Upgrading the housing and reverting the ground floor to its original purpose – retail – were among the priorities. House of Hanover is pleased to announce that the walkway level of stores is now complete with a varied mix of retail stores. Among them are:
The Kindly Fruits
Proprietor Natalie Kabasakalian provides an inviting environment for fair trade and ethically sourced items like organic cotton sleepwear, kitchen goods, and artisanal decorative items.
