Value Zone store-- strange hsitory

This Value Zone home goods store was doing a thriving business about seven years ago, and I remember walking down there one day meaning to get a new comforter for my bed...to my surprise, the place had been shut down overnight.

It has remained that way all this time, and now there are signs in the window about somebody owing $90,000 in back rent ( no more information than that).

Have the feeling several people have considered this site and maybe started moves to acquire it but the rent was too high. Who knows.

Sign still has some automatic turn on device that lights up 3 of the remaining letters of the store name...no one has ever bothered to just shut that off entirely. Weird.

There are so many strange stories in the Big Apple, and this will just remain one of them.
