9st Laundrette Cleaners, the laundromat on Ninth Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, will be closing on Monday the 28th after more than 20 years in business, FIPS reported.
The blog posted a nice eulogy for the old laundromat, nothing the friendliness of the hard-working owners, Mr. and Mrs. Lee, who always kept the place spotless. "WWhether you do your laundry there or drop off for wash/dry/fold service," they said, "Mr. and Mrs. Lee always make the über annoying process of "laundry" not seem like a chore."
The reason for the closure? A rent hike, of course.
