Vampire Freaks closing on Avenue A



As you can see from the signs sent along via a reader, the retail outlet for goths, punks and everyone else into skull-and-crossbones apparel is closing... Haven't heard just yet if they'll continue as an online-only entity like before opening here between 11th Street and 12th Street in the fall of 2008...

Aw, that sucks. I always peeked, but never went into the store (my vampire and freak-related needs are long gone, I'm afraid), but I liked that they were there. The staff is very cool-looking. Maybe I'll stop by and pick up some bondage pants for old times' sake.

I'm sorry to see them go. I appreciate any creative business in the hood. Let's hope that something creative takes over their address.

Too bad. A unique addition to the community.

That's too bad. They were nice people. Are they another business being forced out by a greedy landlord?

I was kind of miffed when I found out that they're not real vampires. They just sell costumes and stuff.

Remember when that animals mural on the side of this building was painted over and replaced with an ad?

They were cool. Sorry to see them go.

And now my mind shifts to the inevitable: what's going in here?

Hey Grieve, how about a poll?!
