Colony Records To Close

Ever vigilant, Jeremiah's Vanishing New York reported this morning the soon-to-happen closing of an iconic music related shop in the heart of Times Square: Colony Music. There for sixty years, and definitely a remainder (and reminder) of another era.

As he writes, "...die-hard vinylists might see Colony as a tourist trap, overpriced and understocked, I always found it to be a respite from the Times Square stupidity, from the crowds of tourists hungry for the next Disney fix.

I could step inside and step back in time, to a quieter, more unusual place--where I might run into something odd, like a Sal Mineo Fan Club button."

Apparently they'll remain for a little while longer, but gave no indication of how long that actually means. I'll definitely miss seeing the store there when I'm forced to pass through Times Square.
