Below is a post from their facebook page:
Hey, Hope all is well for everyone.

New York City Chess is up and running, ( Post Sandy ).

Chess Shop is now closed however, it was a great 40 year run but while we attempted to preserve it, The Chess Shop became more of a curiosity or portrait than viable retail environment…Indeed, those who thoughtfully bid us farewell in the final days, admittedly had never set foot in the place lol…The Chess Shop lives on though. We’ll be opening several smaller different type of sites for play, learning, competition and laughter…stay tuned.

We may still be reached for any outstanding issues @
