The Triumph served a terrific breakfast. And let's not forget Bleecker Street Health and Beauty Aids, the semi-subterranian drugstore at the corner of Thompson. It was well-stocked with friendly sales help and prices lower than chain stores. Ah, well.

Loved the Triumph, and the woman who ran the toys store had the most unique look, and there was a jazz club for a while upstairs at the Thompston St. corner. ah, good times.


The original Kim's used to share space with a dry cleaner on Avenue A.

that Kim's spawned Other Music, though, as the owners of OM all worked at Kim's until quitting en masse a few months before opening OM.

so that's a rare (very rare) case where NYC didn't really lose anything when a beloved store closed.
