Music Stops on 48th Street

New, 2 comments

Lost City reports that Manny's Musical Instruments, a 74-year institution on West 48th Street's "Music Row" between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, will close at the end of May. LC writes: "Manny's was bought out in 1999 by Sam Ash, the musical 300-pound gorilla of Music Row and the most visible merchant on the street. A man from Sam Ash called a meeting at Manny's last Saturday and dropped the bomb that, after 74 years, Manny's would be put out of business. Some Manny's employees may be taken on by other Sam Ash stores here and in Jersey." [Lost City]
