Culture on the Cheap
Riddle Of The Day
Jay Lombard of Dog Habitat asks:
When is a square not a square?
Answer: when it’s in Greenpoint!
The sports bar that was located at 1 Bedford Ave has been given a makeover and a new name: Greenpoint Square. I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of it this morning. The windows were covered so I couldn’t tell how close they are to opening (another) bar in GP. I was laughing at the name because Greenpoint’s ‘flatiron’ building is anything but square!
Well, I swung by today to give this place a look-see. Not only were these guys gracious enough to tell me their planned opening date (next Friday, February 12) but they also let me inside to take a couple photographs!
Will these guys make their self-imposed deadline of one week? I’m not terribly sure. Nonetheless they are doing some very lovely work on the space I am very eager to see the finished product!
1 Bedford Avenue (Greenpoint’s “Flatiron Building”)
Brooklyn, New York 11222
Proposed Opening Date: Friday, February 12, 2009
