The building which used to house Manny’s Music is set to be torn down in the very near future. For 74 years Manny’s was THE place to buy musical instruments. Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and Paul Simon all bought instruments here. Even though Manny’s had been closed since 2009, the iconic vertical sign still hangs on the sign of the building. This one will be missed. Without Manny’s would some of the most important people history have delayed getting their first instruments? Or spent that money on something else?
