What's happening to the Good Food store on Court Street near 3rd Place? Are they moving/closing? I love going there since it's a family run store that has affordable prices... I would hate to see them go.
Oh, no! I love that place. What's happening? Are the windows papered over?
Not papered over, but the shelves are bare. I asked them what's going on and one of the sons said it's time to retire while the father made a scowling face. I didn't go any further...
I can't believe it. I will truly miss them . I will be back in town tomorrow and will stop by to take some photos .
I was there today and asked about the partially bare shelves. They said they had a month to go before closing. They said they were not opening anywhere else. Sad indeed.
I have been a victim of the "Parking Pig" vigilante two times as have several of my neighbors on Douglass Street. When he thinks you are taking up too much space with your car he takes the liberty of expressing himself on your window. He is an idiot, oftentimes through no fault of your own you are in the middle of too large spot.
Regarding the Children's Rock & Roll venue that Peter Shapiro is planning for Gowanus, I have a few thoughts. I live a few blocks away and am surprised by the uproar that the vocalists have made over it. I walked that street a few nights ago and it's desolate. Would some people dining and listening to jazz music really be a hardship? I'd love to have a place to take my 5 year old son to participate in music and would welcome an environment where he could play and we could have breakfast. I've been to Brooklyn Bowl and had a good time there. It hasn't destroyed that hood. It wasn't really a hood until BB opened. I'd rather see someone with experience and Brooklyn ties do this upfront than an EDM club. Doesn't sound like Barclay's or Wetlands or Wallmart to me. Sounds pretty good to me. When I sent this same note to WAG's site, they failed to post it. I'm surprised by what a negative, one sided message that's being presented.
Would you mind if I add your comment under the actually Rock and Roll Playhouse post so that others can read it there?
