November 2nd 2003
I regretfully announce the closing of my store, See Hear. The fallout of an ill-fated business expansion onto St. Marks Place in the 1990s coupled with the economic fallout of 9-11 has made it next to impossible to run a viable small-bookstore business.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the customers of See Hear, and the supporters of fringe publications, who've come into the shop or done business with the store via the internet over the years.
