The Alley, once the stalwart anchor of the Clark & Belmont countercultural district, is closing as soon as the end of the year, citing construction next door as the final straw. Sister store Taboo Tabou will remain in the neighborhood, and owner Mark Thomas plans to reopen the Alley in Avondale sometime next year.
