It's a long story, but I left my 1200 sq ft of free space in Greenpoint back in 2000. Now it's getting to the point where nobody but the richest can afford to be there and that's a shame. All hail the almighty dollar!

Good that Dave Grohl tried to help them out, but seems rents are out of hand.

The Southern Tracks building got hit by the wrecking ball last month
and Coast Recorders in S.F. (Putnam room) closed it's doors last week.

Commercial landlords can deduct lost rent from their taxes.

FWIW, I hear similar complaints from friends in London, Dorset and Glasgow ...

And a friend from Dublin who's here now.

People want to live in a vibrant area that's brimming with culture. Unfortunately a lot of the people with big $ move into that neighborhood and end up forcing out all those vibrant artistic types.

This makes me sad. Between real estate developers and plummeting music sales, studio owners don't have a chance.

Perhaps I could sharecrop a tiny corner of your gated reverb drum room, just me, my cow and my serfs?

Took a walk this morning, even more vacant storefronts. Like seriously more.
Other than that, things are looking really good for Merica.
