Pearl River Remains

As you know, the beloved Pearl River Mart closed when its rent was hiked from $100,000 to a reported $500,000 per month.

Here's what remains.

I am saddened to hear this. I've been patronizing Pearl Market for years. They offered unique finds, especially when it came to speciality foods and candy. I even purchased bamboo blinds for my apartment there. This is a mere illustration of what is transpiring around and before us in Manhattan. I've lived in NYC since 2000 and fail to recognize what it has developed and evolved into. I also shutter to imagine what will now replace this destination. Capital One Bank? Citibank? H&M? Starbucks? Magnolia Bakery? Barf. This loss in SoHo is real and will be felt by everyone who shopped there. RIP Pearl River Market :(

For me, Pearl River will always be the dingy second-floor treasure trove through the dirty plastic curtains on Canal Street.

Half a million a month?! Holy cow! That's insane.

Very sad to hear this too, one of the greatest New York stores

Pure GREED

I work in SoHo and earlier this year I was invited to fill out a questionnaire from the local business improvement district folks. There was one question that just asked what I would like to see done to improve the area - I said "Stop the mall-ification. Save Pearl River."

I knew it wasn't going to work but I couldn't resist a little wishful answering.

Broken hearted when I learned my beloved Pearl River would no longer be the downtown icon it had always been. What's New York without the Empire State Building...without the Statue of Liberty? What's downtown without Pearl River Mart? Sad...
