Though “Bleecker Bob” is identified with some of the great names of rock and roll through the decades, and especially downtown movements from the Village’s folk scene through punk, new wave and alternative music, now, time is finally catching up with the oldest record store in the Village.
There are cracks in the black and white linoleum floor. Dust gathers on Bob’s collection of art deco clocks, many of which have stopped. Though the landlord of their building on West Third Street has been good to Bob over the years, he’s finally putting the rent up in line with prices in the area. Bleecker Bob’s is getting priced out.

‘For the Records’: Capital presents a documentary about the final days of Bleecker Bob’s

When it goes, it will take with it a huge part of the history of the Village. ... And, next time you’re in the neighborhood, stop in while you can.
First St. Mark’s Bookshop, now Bleecker Bob’s.
And my sentiment on record stores and shopping for a physical media.

"The artist, like the God of the creation, remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails."
