Word is spreading that The Sock Man is closing on St. Mark's Place.
The shop has been peddling socks, tights, lingerie and other accessories on the block between Second Avenue and Third Avenue since 1983.
We'll share more details as they becomes available.
Jeremiah Moss has more on the closing at Vanishing New York.
Per a JVNY reader: Owner Marty Rosen is "being forced off St. Mark's Place forever due to Real Estate tyrannical fascism. It breaks my heart to help him pack up the store. He plans to look for a new space and to continue his online business, but this is so disturbing."
