Sports Museum of America, Essex Card Shop

The Sports Museum of America, at 26 Broadway, closed today until
further notice.
In the East Village, Two Boots on Avenue A has closed, and the planned expansion of the
Essex Card Shop, also on Avenue A, has fallen through. Record store Etherea, at 66 Avenue A between 4th and 5th streets, is
closing during the last week of February
Manny’s Musical Instruments, on West 48th Street between Sixth and
Seventh avenues, will close at the end of May. The entire street,
known as Music Row, may eventually be leveled to make room for the
expansion of Rockefeller Center. If the economy doesn’t improve, chef Michael Miele of Gino, at 780 Lexington Avenue on the
Upper East Side, said the restaurant will close.
Store closings are increasing in Queens, where according to a survey
by Representative Anthony Weiner, 211 of the 1,730 stores surveyed
are closed or about to close. But in more positive news, after being
shut down on Wednesday afternoon by health inspectors, Payard Patisserie & Bistro, at 1032 Lexington Avenue, reopened today.
