Two weeks after Billy Leroy, owner of Billy's Antiques & Props, hosted a farewell party for his iconic tent a coffin still stands at the site in New York Friday, March 23, 2012. The local landmark, which has stood on that spot for 30 years, was taken down the following day to make way for a new building -- considered by many a symbolic blow to "the old New York." Hundreds of local artists, musicians and other residents turned out for Billy's "funeral," hosted by Leroy, the star of the upcoming series "Baggage Battles" on the Travel Channel.
