It is unfortunately true that the legendary CBGB’s, birthplace of the Ramones has been closed for good. Now, while we bemoan the legendary rock and roll venue, I would like to check into the truth of this statement made by the landlord:
The Bowery Residents’ Committee, landlord of the building on the Bowery, "believes it is in the best interest of our clients — the homeless and neediest New Yorkers — to sever this relationship," BRC executive director Muzzy Rosenblatt said.
If this is the case then fine but how exactly is the closure of CBGB’s going to help the homeless of New York? I would like some details.
