Zipper Factory closes
I'll miss this funky venue, which survived despite opening right after 9/11 but couldn't make it through a rumored spat over real estate. Too bad: There aren't a lot of reasons to go down to West 37th Street after (or before) dark, and the 37 Arts complex down the block is idling. The producers hope to resurrect the concept but in today's economic doldrums I suspect the Zipper will be tightly fastened for a while.
