Just a little local reminder that the Kwa is going down. Perhaps Eddie Rothschild will lend them some shekels?

The IMAC is a treasure in midst of Huntington. While these are tough times and many of the "wealthy" have lost $$ over the past few years, I cannot believe that someone in the Huntington area cannot come in to help the IMAC. Huntington is the most culturally relevant place on LI. This would be a terrible loss.

This is the downfall of huntington village. the town has to do something because of the high rent. there are already a lot of empty stores.

Now with the imac gone a lot more will leave . all that will remain of the village is bars and the library.

There's that second floor bar on the corner, but what else?

Cowards and haters like you and your friend von Brunn are a disgrace to this country. May you spend your life in a cave with your other friend bin Laden

This is sad. Saw David Bromberg there years ago, as well as David Grisman. IMAC was always a gem back then. I have good memories of those performances. Sad to see it go. It was a beautiful place a little rough on the edges with character.
