    The domino affect of the forced closure of St Vincents Hospital (nearby), last year, In Greenwich Village. The stores that catered to visitors, hospital staff and patients alike are now closing down due to lack of trade.

    I met an elderly women as I was taking these photos and she told me how she had been living in the area since these stores had opened…she was very disheartened as to the way the area is changing, beyond recognition…

    Is this progress?
