The Dr. Jay's legacy began in 1975 with the opening of the first store, in the South Bronx section of New York.
Not coincidentally, hip-hop had its origins in the same neighborhood around the same time that Dr. Jay's opened its first doors.
The urban landscape was changing, and with the new music came a new fashion sensibility. Dr. Jay's has been a pioneer in
providing these urban fashions ever since, growing to 17 stores throughout the New York Metro area.
Serving the fashion-savvy consumers of the New York Metro area for 25 years has been very rewarding, and our appeal to the
many out-of-state and international shoppers that visit our stores each day makes us equally proud. The next time you are
in New York, we invite you to visit one of our stores to experience in-person the legendary Dr. Jay's selection and service.
