Art Brown's venerable pen store closes its doors in Manhattan
Adam Frank reported on Pentrace this weekend about the sudden closing of the venerable (next year would have been their 90th year) Manhattan pen shop, Art Brown -- a family business.
All reports indicate that this was due to an increase in rent that could no longer be sustained (some report an increase to $50,000 per month!).
What a sad event.
