Sam Ash to Leave Historic 48th Street Address - July 24, 2012 Musical Merchandise Review
"The first to leave will be the brass, winds and drums shops on the north side, said Paul Ash, a son of company founders Sam and Rose Ash.
"“Eventually we’ll move all of them,” he said. The ones on the north side, in the base of a garage, must go soon because the property owners are “planning a condo.”" The day the music died on 48th Street - by Steve Cuozzo, NYPost July 24, 2012
New York's famous W48th Street aka "Music Row" will never be the same! But the spirit of the music scene will forever remain. Did you catch Sammy Ash's interview on MMR and his nice comments about Rudy's Music? It's still the coolest scene on Earth, and that's how it always was down on 48th Street, a microcosm of the global "love and good vibes" world of professional musicians.
