St. Mark’s Comics, East Village, NYC

St. Mark’s Comics, an East Village #comicbookStore located on St. Mark’s Place for the past 36 years just announced that it will be closing at the end of February. Mitch Cutler, the owner, said on Facebook, “We’ve been asked why. There are lots of obstacles to running a retail storefront in NYC; too many of them at once to fight, and after 36 pretty intense years, not enough left to fight them. We are forever grateful to our customers, who made it possible to pursue our passion for so long.” • We are saddened to hear this as many longtime businesses on this street have closed in recent years and our dog @hudsonpittienyc (as seen in this photo) always liked watching the street from his perch outside the shop.
