No Rhyme & Reason

Rhyme & Reason, the card shop on 14th Street and Irving Place, is now officially closed. As Racked noted, the owner was facing a huge rent hike for this corner spot in the Zeckendorf Towers. What's to come? I have no idea! But it's a prime spot in NYUville. Also! There's a Duane Reade a block away on 14th and Third...and a Walgreens across the street. So this seems like a good spot for a drug store. Rite Aid?




Anyway, I figured something was up last month when the Christmas items went on sale...

The only other traditional card store I knew, which was on Delancey, has also closed. Now where am I going to get Halloween cards? The other card stores I know of are just not suitable for cards for parents and such.

Yeah, I have a difficult time finding a decent and simple card for a relative or firned...there are still plenty of Hallmark stores around (20 in Manhattan?)...but there never seems to be one convenient where I live/work...

There is still the Hallmark store on 14th between 1st & A where you can also make a copy for .10 and buy candy on Feb 15 for 50% off.
