End of an Era: DC Has Left New York City
I was in New York City this past weekend for MoCCA Fest 2015, and whenever I left the show area, I had a vague sense of melancholy. That’s because DC Comics had decamped for the west coast, and there would no longer be any point in walking by 1700 Broadway, where I worked in 1996.
It’s been a long time since then, of course, but memories keep coming back, particularly when I read Bob Greenberger’s posts on his long and storied history with the company. There are six in total: one two three four five and six. It’s a view into another world, a long-ago time where business was done very differently.
Contrast that with Heidi’s overview, which considers more of a look toward the future and the inevitability of change. I know that’s the case, that nothing lasts forever, but it still feels different to me. Which is silly, logically, since it’s been almost 20 years since DC has been important to my daily life. Yet change, good, bad, or irrelevant, is worth noting.
