The closing of the Good Yarn leaves knitters without a local home. Yes there are other knit shops in the region but they all require using public transportation or a car.

I was sad to see movieworks go because almost every friday night, my family would go and rent a movie for the weekend. But now we only have limited access to movies. But not only that, movieworks was right near my daughter's school. Also Movieworks was one of the last movie shops in brookline. Now everything has gone digital. Now if i want i dvd i have to go a local library.

The sudden closing of Russian Village in Washington Square surprised me. It seems to be a trend, local businesses shuttering without warning. On the flip side, I'm equally surprised that The Upper Crust's Brookline location hasn't closed. I know that it is separate from the pizzerias divvied up via bankruptcy proceedings, but Otto seems to be winning away its customers.

I agree, Carol, regarding Good Yarns. Indeed, it now requires a car (for me) or public transportation.
