One of the drawbacks of living in an age where we can all binge watch Netflix without pants or forced social contact is the disappearance of video shops. Park Slope Stoop reports the pantless Netflixing that defines our era has likely claimed Video Gallery (316 7th Avenue), Park Slope’s last movie rental store, after 15 years in business.
Video Gallery will be selling DVDS 3 for $10 until the store closes at the end of September, so if you’re down to sift through what’s left there are probably some steals. The owner didn’t specify why they’re closing, but video shops bring back lots of nostalgia and it sucks to lose a reminder of the days you got movie recommendations from a person instead of an algorithm.
