Black Fox Pine St
A collaborative partnership between two Australian entrepreneurs, Black Fox Pine Street occupies 500sqm New York City’s financial district and is the duos first café in the city.
Occupying the ground floor of the historic former Cities Service Building, a 1930s-era skyscraper that was once the world’s tallest, the space has been given a sleek contemporary refurbishment.
Warm kiln-dried walnut seating and tabletops soften the high-ceilinged concrete space, while angular patterned timber panels along the bar echo the historic building’s Art Deco lines. As does the strategically hung wiring for the shop’s handsome Ladies and Gentlemen light fixtures.
Bench seating and a standing bar are complemented by a people-watching row of window seats with sunken magazine slots, all the better to break from the busy NYC surrounding streets.
