Goodbye, Gotham Book Mart
Ron Silliman notes on his blog that the Gotham Book Mart in Manhattan is no longer in business.
What a sad day.
Here's link to the story in the New York Times:
Gotham Book Mart
Someone in the article asks "Where were the poets?"
My guess is that not a lot of poets had $400,000+ to beat the landlord's bid on the stock. Or $1,000 to deposit for the right to attend the auction.
