Kim’s Video Closes and a Village Sensibility Dies 

 This New York Times piece about the closing of Kim's Video and Music in the East Village reminded me that over the weekend I walked past the West Side's last video store -- Alan's Alley -- and found it was no longer in business. I only went there once in the last few years -- I NEEDED to watch "The King of Comedy" and it was nowhere to be found online -- but I will miss it just the same. I hear it's technically moved to a new location on W. 26th St., but the tape came out of this cartridge years ago.
