When Typewriters & Things closed in 2013, after nearly 30 years in business in the Village, the space changed owners. Bino Gan, typewriter repairman to the stars, had retired.
The place on 8th Avenue near Horatio became World News Stationary [sic] Copy & Fax, part of the World News & Smoke Shop newsstand next door. Now we hear that they're being forced to close.
A reader writes in that the shop is "being forced to close because of a steep rent hike by the co-op (14 Horatio Street) that owns the space. The same guy also owns two small grocery shops on the same block, and he's also being forced out of the one owned by 14 Horatio."
They'll be gone soon. Everything's on sale.
