Alan's Alley, the last Manhattan video rental store I am aware of, on the verge on being leased. I only ventured in once; looked like it was run by the Collyer brothers.

Kim's Video to close, maybe move
As great as #RSD2014 was (thank you all!), sadly we will be closing our store on 1st Ave. No closing date yet but 30% off ALL VIDEO and MUSIC. (all formats and NRs as well).
