For further reading on Mondo Kim's.
And thanks to Gothamist for picking up the story Saturday. I liked what Billy Parker had to say:
The space once belonging to Mondo Kim's record and video store on St. Marks Place is going to be opening as a new karaoke joint for the thousands of bridge and tunnelers who desperately need an alternative to Sing Sing across the street.
And I never did find naming a karaoke place after a maximum security prison all that cute.
