I remember years back when I'd go to LA & find some place missing. one time it was the Brown Derby on Vine another C.C. Brown's. it seemd as if that city had no reverence for its past. not like NYC.
well that was long ago. now when I get back to New York I find places gone. Broadway theaters. restaurants. & just this week more sad news out of Manhattan. 2 famous bookstores are in peril. Coliseum Books at Broadway & 57th has filed for bankruptcy. Gotham Book Mart is facing eviction.
