Happenings At 978 Lorimer Street

There has been a lot of speculation about this converted storefront (whose address is 978 Lorimer Street but is actually located on Norman Avenue). Yesterday, after spying a recently-installed hood vent I asked the gentleman what was going on. He was more than happy to  take a break from from his work and oblige. Here’s the scoop:

  • The left-hand storefront will house a catering establishment which will serve box lunches.
  • The right-hand storefront will be a coffee shop.

So there have you. While they still have a ways to go I will prognosticate that this will be a most welcome development for many a Greenpointer’s morning commute.

  4. The last time I checked the owner of Cookie Road is still awaiting a few permits from the city. In the meantime she is pretty much precluded from serving up any sugary goodness.

Tell me what you're thinking...
