The final location of Kim's, 124 First Avenue, closed its doors this past Monday--leaving behind an era of musical and cinematic brick-and-mortar treasures. Yongman Kim opened his first location in 1987 on Anenue A. The locale came out of what was a corner of videos for sale in his laundromat. From there, a handful of locations opened, only to close nearly a decade later thanks to the interwebz.
