From The New York Shitty Inbox: Goodbye, Manhattan Furrier
A woman named Jennifer writes:
I’m a longtime resident of Greenpoint and I’m making a documentary about Irving Feller, the furrier who owns a shop at 685 Manhattan Avenue. After 60 years of business, he is finally closing shop at the end of the month. We will be there this Saturday, March 19th from 12pm-5pm. If anyone wants to swing by and buy up his native american jewelry & vintage fur coats…or simply give their regards…I know he would appreciate it. Greenpoint is losing one of it’s finest gems…the era has finally ended.
Manhattan Furrier R.I.P.
March 19, 2011 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
685 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222
How much do you want to bet, fellow Greenpointers, this space will be occupied by an(other) “eating and drinking” establishment? Emphasis on the latter.
