Profile

Housed in a former firehouse and bread company, its entrance now covered in graffiti, Elizabeth Street Gallery is an atmospheric mash-up of architectural and antique objects, including second-century Greek and Roman carved-stone vessels, sixteenth- to nineteenth-century architectural elements and statuary, and twentieth-century folk art and curiosities. Owner Allan Reiver, formerly of Urban Archeology, sells and rents original pieces and also creates pitch-perfect reproductions. Among the finds covering the sixteenth-century French stone floor of the lengthy showroom are a mid-seventeenth-century Northern European iron safe in the shape of a barrel, used to disguise valuables during maritime travel; forged-iron spearhead gates from a Venetian palace; a ten-by-twelve-foot Coney Island shooting gallery in original, working condition; and a life-size wooden horse originally used to display saddles and harnesses. In front of a working fireplace at the center of the massive space, a low, wide coffee table—crafted from a nineteenth-century iron grill removed from a train station—is piled high with architecture and interior-design books. Weathered leather seating affords visitors an opportunity to sit back and take it all in.
