NYC Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex to Close
“NEW YORK (Reuters) – Just one year after opening, the New York City annex to Cleveland’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will close its doors on January 3, according to one of the corporate partners in the venture.
S2BN Entertainment announced the closure in a statement.
“There is no doubt the economy factored into our leaving, but overall we had a good year,” said Caren Bell, spokeswoman for the 25,000 square foot annex in Manhattan’s Soho district.
The offshoot to the main museum in Ohio opened to fanfare in November 2008 with Mayor Michael Bloomberg hailing it as another cultural destination for the roughly 46 million visitors to New York City every year.”
