Sherry-Lehmann's Purple Plywood

The Sherry-Lehmann wine store's move from its longtime location at 679 Madison Avenue to the northeast corner of 59th and Park is coming along. Workers are busy inside the space and shelving is going up. The store maintains that the transition will be complete by mid-to-late August.

The shop could teach the development-crazy city a little something about stylish construction. Sherry-Lehmann has painted its plywood a fetching shade of plum on both the Park Avenue and 59th Street sides. The paint job brightens up the area and adds a spark of color to the sedate intersection.
