Hip-hop retailer to open first Big Apple location.

Romp, the Los Angeles "rave-influenced" apparel retailer, is bringing the latest in West Coast hip-hop fashions to New York. The successful Melrose Avenue merchandiser has signed a 2,0000-square-foot lease at 659 Broadway in Noho in the store's first expansion. Artufo Gruenebaum of Helmsley-Spear, Inc. represented the tenant.

Rave-wear, or hip-hop fashion is night-life-inspired clothing that has heightened in popularity given high exposure on MTV and music videos. Staple clothing items at Romp include T-shirts, baseball caps, and baggy pants, as well as industrial-style shoes such as Dr. Martens.

Romp currently has a 1,400-square-foot clothing store and a 1,000-square-foot shoe store in Los Angeles. Terms of the New York lease were not disclosed.
