No more music on New York’s Music Rowmain
The last music store on the block of 48th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues has announced it’s closing down.
The strip used to be a mecca where you went to buy, upgrade or repair and instrument, not to mention meet musicians of every calibre from all corners of the world. But rising rents, typically tripled to $12,000 a month, have put the music stores out of business. New York is killing another part of its character.
