Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On Bushwick Avenue: Coming Soon
Filed under: 11206, Bushwick, Bushwick Brooklyn, East Williamsburg, East Williamsburg Brooklyn
My curiousity was when I saw this long-vacant store front on Bushwick Avenue so I asked one of hte owners, the woman in the above photograph what gives. She told me they going to open up an “eating and drinking establishment” serving American fare which will be sourced out to local businesses. Intriguing.
In any case, she and her partner currently operate a watering hole on the Southside, East River, and this serves as a good a reason as any to remind everyone that the social event of the season— that being this month’s Public Safety Committee Meeting— will come to pass tonight (Cinco de Mayo!) at Greenpoint’s very own Polish National Home. If the proceedings (NOTE: the proposed “moratorium” on liquor licenses is slated to be discussed) are anywhere near as
acrimonious lively as this week’s Parks & Waterfront meeting I’d say north Brooklyn is in for a memorable evening.
