5 Ninth Avenue, New York
Located in the heart of the Meatpacking District, Fort Gansevoort is a cultural hub for art, design, and food, founded by curator Adam Shopkorn and his wife Carolyn Angel. Set in a Greek Revival row house built in 1849, Fort Gansevoort is located on Gansevoort Plaza, between the intersection of Gansevoort and Little West 12th Street. The three-story building contains a gallery, take-out BBQ window, and dynamic spaces for curated retail experiences.
Fort Gansevoort Gallery
Organized by founder Adam Shopkorn, Fort Gansevoort Gallery is a platform for experimentation and collaboration that exhibits emerging and established artists whose practices bridge relationships between old, new, high, and low culture.
Fort Gansevoort S, M, L.
Co-organized by Carolyn Angel and stylist Kat Typaldos, Fort Gansevoort S, M, L. will be located on the property's three floors, each containing the original small, medium, and large bars from its past incarnation as a dining establishment. Reinvented as a creative platform, S, M, L. will feature an ongoing rotation of idiosyncratic talents such as florists, jewelry designers, rare book dealers, record dealers, coffee makers or bakers, bringing an innovative and unique retail experience to the district.
Fort Gansevoort BBQ
A takeout window located on the Little West 12th Street side of the building, Fort Gansevoort BBQ will engage with the neighborhood of the Meatpacking District and work with the few remaining local meatpackers to source its ingredients.
