The Video Gallery in Park Slope is closing.
One More Folded Sunset writes, "It had to happen sooner or later. At a time when the video store is
practically extinct, the much loved Video Gallery, on Park Slope's
Seventh Avenue, will be gone by the end of the month. Last time I
returned a DVD there, a couple of weeks ago, the owner, Kathy
Smelyansky, waived my late fee, and I guessed the end was in sight."
Recently, I took the above photo, thinking how melancholy is the video store at night, a little lonely. I wondered how long before it was gone. Brokelyn says it's the last video store in the neighborhood.
Says Folded Sunset, "When you go into the store right now, the atmosphere is one of shocked
sadness, and appreciation. We can't believe the place is really
closing! There's a sale on in the store & the DVDs are disappearing
