The List is fascinated by all things New York. Today, we asked ourselves one of the important questions of our time: How long do stores stay in business? We didn't know, so we did a block census. We went into every store on 5th Ave between Degraw and Sacket in Brooklyn and asked how long the store had been open, what the building was previously, and anything else that popped into our heads.
We surveyed all 19 storefronts: five restaurants, two cafes, two corner markets, two vintage stores, two clothing stores, a dry cleaner, a massage parlor, a computer repair shop, a car service, a shipping store, and a church.

Peace out, cub scouts.

P.S. We're still experimenting with different formats for the List. We have no idea what we'll do next week.
