About Us

CityWorn was founded in 2020 as New York City battled through the Covid-19 pandemic that shuttered hundreds of businesses citywide. We pay tribute to shuttered and defunct New York City landmarks with fresh, new Zizmorcore designs inspired by defunct iconic businesses.

From a 120 year old bakery on the Upper East Side that closed just before the pandemic to an infamous sex club shuttered a decade ago, we’re bringing back all the New York City Zizmorcore favorites.

So, while you cant visit Le Trapeze or Glaser’s Bake Shop anymore, these memorable locations can live on by wearing one of CityWorn’s icon-inspired t-shirts.

We also encourage you to shop local in your neighborhood and support New York City businesses.
