On the walk from Balthazar to Film Forum yesterday, I counted four shuttered landmarks: Vesuvio Bakery, The Cub Room, Depression Modern and the Stork Club. With the exception of that last one, all of these are places where I spent a significant amount of time when I worked in that neighborhood, circa 2003-2005. With the exception of Depression Modern, I’m pretty sure none of these places were closed the last time I did that walk, about two weeks ago.
