View to a Kill?

No sooner did I find out that famed drag-queen restaurant Lips hadn't actually gone out of business, but had simply moved from the West Village to a new location on East 56th, did I also see in the middle of Gay Pride Weekend that View Bar had in fact called it a day. I never cared for View Bar -- the space will always be best remembered by Chelsea residents as the Break, a hot spot in the '90s -- but its demise still got me wondering whether the death of the gay bar -- like the death of the gay bookstore before it -- was indeed imminent, as some have predicted.
