« The Village Cannot Abide | Main | 'Those Cheerless Streets': Back to Roosevelt Park »

October 24, 2015



Mrs. Schindler worked in an office next door back when it was still there.


Back in the early to mid 1970's there was a similar shop in midtown. On the east side of Third avenue, between 32nd and 33rd there's a high rise condo, that has stores that are below street level with stairs leading down to them. I just looked at google maps, and I believe it is now a "nail spa", but back then it was a "Occult" place. I went in once, and the guy behind the counter looked liked something out of "central casting". He invited me to a gathering in a loft down in Soho. It always struck me a odd place for that kind of store.

Haven't talked to you in a while, Alex, hope you are well. This is a great story my old friend Alan Cabal wrote about the place:
