Legendary Greenwich Village record store Bleecker Bob’s, a shop that has been there for pretty much every notable incarnation of the modern NYC music scene, will be leaving it’s West 3rd Street location as the landlord seeks to increase the storefront’s rent to the very expensive level of the modern day West Village. Capital New York has put together a 30-minute documentary about the store and its future called For The Records, a film that features interviews with Bob Plotnik — who opened up Bleecker Bob’s in the ’60s, right in the heart of the Greenwich Village folk scene — and other characters integral in the store’s legacy. Watch it at Capital New York.
