Yes, people are forever complaining about disappearing businesses and institutions in New York City and for the most part, I think it’s just the way New York has always worked. But when you look at these places listed here, combined, it’s a drag, no question. There are lots of forces at play that made these joints close up or move, but sentiment is not one of them. Bottom line, NYC is about money and business –it’s not a museum to the past or your fixed idea of what New York is. Plus, a lot more besides these 14 have shuttered. Next up in 2015? – more closings no doubt, to make way for new, but not necessarily better.
