Upper West Side Coffee Shop Closes

NY1 reported that Café La Fortuna, has closed its doors after more than 30 years in business. The café on West 71st Street became known for its A-list celebrity customers – the most famous being John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

The owner says the high rent and the death of his wife were behind his decision to close the shop.

    It's places like this that leave a stamp on a neighborhood so after 30 years I can only imagine how sad it is for the locals. I can understand though wanting a change, as the proprietor, after all that time. Stil sad! Hopefully something equally memorable will move in; or a Starbucks :-)
