Coming a little late to the possible closing of CBGB story, the New York Press decides to have some fun at the old club's expense:
We have to believe, however, that in contemplating the death of CBGB, there are things to consider beyond skyrocketing property values. Such as: "What's the point of keeping it open?"... We're no fans of chains, but we also don't cry every time a Quiznos opens on St. Marks. The city's counterculture heritage spots are up for grabs, and if the homesteaders were foolish enough to blow through their modest earnings like kids on allowance day, let it be a lesson for everybody else: Buy the building as soon as you can.Wait, a Quiznos opened on St. Marks? Anyone been??
