Pour One Out for The Annex

The Annex RIP

Everybody, take a knee.  After more than 30 years of making discount footwear dreams come true, The Annex is dead and gone.

Over the course of the summer, my father – Sneaker King, Larry Mirigliani – documented the demolition.  Brick-by-brick, Nike-by-Nike, it all came crumbling down.  If we’re all lucky, maybe the new owners will plant some sneaker plants along the empty lot.

Let’s look at these photos, remember the good times and have a good cry together.  But in the words of Dorothy Giuli, “I don’t like it, but I guess we have to get used to it”
