In December 2009, we first heard the terrible news about the closure of Skyline Books on 18th Street. It was a hard one to take. The space has been empty since it shuttered in January 2010, but it recently reopened with a new tenant.
UniKwax, a body waxing chain from Florida, is now bringing hairlessness where once were books of art and poetry.
Books--out! Celebrity eyebrows--in!
Yes, UniKwax can give you the brows of celebs like "Eva Longoria Parker, Vanessa Williams, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Tyra Banks and Christie Turlington."
Meanwhile, 10 blocks north, Skyline's new incarnation ekes out an existence in the front of a flower merchant's workshop. But for how long? How much longer will any of what matters still be permitted to endure in this town without pity?
