Bleecker Bob's saying goodbye?


 Greenwich Village Daily Photo & Jeremiah's Vanishing NY report the following:

Sweet suffering Christ, when will it end? Ken Mac over at Greenwich Village Daily Photo just reported the staggering news that Bleecker Bob's record store is becoming a Starbucks.

He writes on his blog, "I walked into Bob's the other morning and asked him straight up, 'Is a Starbucks moving in here?' He replied 'Maybe,' not 'absolutely not!' The manager of Cafe Reggio confirms the Starbucks takeover of Bob's space, adding 'Starbucks will take 30% of our business. All the NYU kids want their mocha frappuccino.'"

Killing two birds with one stone, Starbucks?

Is the store that Fred Armisen is browsing through in the opening credits of SNL?

I believe it is although I haven't seen it in a while. It was also the store that Seinfeld based a store on in the episode where Kramer tries to sell used records.
