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?
My family has lived between Smith and Hoyt on 3rd St. Since the 20's.The amount of people who die on our block from Cancer is at an alarming rate including several members of my family.We have always blamed it on the Nation Grid's Citizens Gas Works site and the concrete factories down the block.The fact that they are considering building on this site is a scary thought!
Katia.You should head down to the dock at the end of second street and the canal...take a photo of the interesting art floating in the gowanus. It's a neon manequen parts with flowers...very weird and blog-worthy.George from Union St.
Thanks, George. Will try to make it over there this afternoon.
Is the Art of Natural Beauty spa closing? I saw a posting for the storefront for rent for $10,500? Is that even possible to get that kind of rent now on Court St? Especially in a building with so many issues (mice, bugs, lack up upkeep)? Do you know what is happening?
Had no idea the place is for rent but will investigate. But yes, that seem so be the going rate right now...Thanks for letting me know.
Does anyone know what's going on with Ciro's on Smith? It seemed to be doing well, but now has paper in the windows. Hopefully just a renovation?
Hi Anon,Ciro's is closed for good and a new place is taking over. The reno work does not seem to have started yet.Will report as soon as I find out anything.
Did you hear about the crazy guy that was breaking things in Smith & Vine last night? I didn't see him personally, but my roommate did. Would love to know what the hell happened.
No, I had not heard. The guy just went in the store and broke bottles?I'll check it out. Thanks for telling me.
JL,I talked to one of the owners of Smith and Vine. Apparently, it was just a drunk guy who came into the store and caused some commotion, but didn't break anything. He was ushered out of the store by staff.
