Modern Modes was a tailor shop in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It later became the residence of Gerald Anthony Grice.


In the summer of 1975, Gerald Anthony Grice kidnapped and murdered six-year-old Blair Roche.

Investigating the kidnapping, Rorschach traced Grice to Modern Modes, broke in and searched the premises. He found overwhelming evidence of Grice's crime; he had dismembered the girl's body using several butcher's tools, fed her to his dogs and had burned her clothes in a small wood stove. Rorschach killed Grice's two German shepards which had been running free on the fenced-in property. Rorschach waited for Grice to return home, trapped him in the house and set fire to it. Grice did not survive.[1]
