Art of the old Essex Card Shop storefront by Leah Tinari
Goodnight Sonny is hosting a benefit tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 1) evening from 5-8 for the fire-damaged Essex Card Shop, 47 Avenue A.
Local artist Leah Tinari is organizing the event. All proceeds (plus tips) from the three hours will help rebuild the longtime Card Shop, which was destroyed in a fire on Jan. 10. (There is also a GoFundMe campaign to support the family-owned shop cover expenses and lost income.)
As previously reported, a 13-year-old boy had been charged with second-degree arson.
Goodnight Sonny is at 134 First Ave. on the NE corner at St. Mark's Place.
