"This is a sad story, made even sadder because it isn’t unique and neither are the circumstances that caused it. It revolves around a storefront on 2nd Avenue and East 41st Street in the great borough of Manhattan. It is an empty storefront and has no life to it right now, but that is not the saddest part. The saddest part is that it wasn’t always empty. Once it had a lot of life and energy inside the doors that are now locked shut."
