Did you know that the Upper East Side had a 32-year-old Western wear store co-founded by former Yankees manager Billy Martin? We say "had" because Billy Martin's western lifestyle boutique is closing, Vanishing New York reports. As the story goes, Martin was inspired to open up the store by Mickey Mantle, who figured the PJ Clarke's crowd could be converted to boot-wearin' adopted sons of Oklahoma. What, is the urban cowboy trend not what it used to be? [VNY]
