Smutty Sunflower Video at 119 Essex Closes
The tattered forest green awning was deposed from 119 Essex Street over a month ago, exposing the florescents bolted to the facade. That was the first conclusive evidence something was amiss at the smutty Sunflower Video. Despite the identity removal, though, business carried on per usual; neons burned bright, Hustler posters teased passersby, and a note promised cheap XXX-rated DVD prices. But now it seems fate has finally leveled its verdict, and it’s bad news bears.

Sunflower Video is no longer part of the Essex Street future. It was a quiet disappearance, with naught but a large “closed” sign on the door to inform their patrons. Not at all surprising. We expected this would eventually transpire, as the thoroughfare now only seems interested in upscale nightlife establishments; and those of a less seedy nature, at that.
