end of an era in greenwich village?? hmmm.. I thought that happened when K-mart was built on Astor Place. :'(

as far as Tower, good..bring back the small shops!!! [clap]
I never go to Tower, sorry. Maybe because they never have anything I'm lookin for.

My fav cd shop has been Generation Records for too many years to remember. [thumbsup] They have an awesome selection and cool kitty kats hanging around.

It's a shame how that area has changed so much. I remember hangin' out at those places when I was a freesytlin'-bmx'n teen with a fake ID ;D Over priced haircuts at Astor place, chillin' at Washington Square in the summer, Gray's Papaya at some ungodly hour, etc..

People still buy CDs?
for mainstream crap, no. But 99% of the bands I listen to aren't commercial top40 and aren't played on the radio. SO if I don't support the bands I like by buying their products and coming to see their shows when they come into town, they won't survive, and then I won't be happy if I don't have something new to listen to. Simple as that. ;)

Hey,
Change isn't always a good thing... nor is progress left unchecked... or unconsidered... CB's may have had to close... and if Gasha (?) had been above board maybe limelight and tunnel wouldn't have gone down... I lived in all those clubs for years... The Scrap Bar on McDougal... worked there... progress... change... lost jobs and people pushed out to be "retrained" or is it left behind as obselete. Do we or do we not have some responsibility to think about the choices we make and the "progress" that we foster...

Ehhhh anyway... as has been said before... its just my lousy .02 cents.

;D

Yeah... I never could get his last name quite right... likely could have googled it but at that hour it wasen't as important as the general idea... yeah, agreed... he had a penchant for some stuff that made living life difficult.
