Marquee of Cort Theatre on West 48th Street showing Manny''s Music

I guess this could be seen as the pop music world’s equivalent of the Joseph Patelson Music House, about whose demise we blogged all too recently.  Now there’s a piece in this week’s New Yorker on the imminent closure of Manny’s Music in New York City.  Devotees have created a “Virtual Wall” to try to keep the vibe alive, but is it really the same thing?
