Garment District Performance Space Zipper Factory Closing


What a depressing week we’re having. First, we hear landmark East Village shop Love Saves the Day is closing. Then, Old Devil Moon, which has been on East 12th off A since the Tompkins Square Riots years. And today, no sooner than Justin Bond had told us to come to his show Sunday at the Zipper Factory, we read that the Garment District performance space is closing amid “a disagreement over real estate.” People, the economy is in tatters. Ghetto-ass boho dives like the above are supposed to be thriving, so what’s going on? [Gothamist]
