Last weekend was blacker than I knew.
Arnold Hatters threw in the top hat after 83 years. And, on Sunday, after much press coverage, Manny's music store on 48th Street gave up the ghost.
Not much left to say about this one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable store. Read all about its great history and sad fate here and here and here and here.
It will become another Sam Ash store.
Oh, the New York Times finally covered the story. On June 1. The day after the place closed. Thanks a lot, Grey Lady. Too little, too late.
