    Village Gate, Rochester, NY.​

    By Davy V.

    Comics Etc. has been a fixture in Rochester, NY's Village Gate Square in Rochester, NY for nearly 30 years.

    That will soon change.

    On Monday, Comics Etc. owner Andy Battaglia received a short email telling him to get out.

    I got notified Monday my tenancy was being terminated,” Battaglia said, “I haven’t been able to sleep since, you know 29 years of paying your rent on time you think you're safe. But I don't fit the current plan which seems to be turning the entire place into restaurants."

    I called Stern Properties, which owns Village Gate Square, and who has so far refused to comment on Battaglia's eviction.

    A woman named Kelly answered the phone and hung up on me.

    I will be updating this story.
