A Garden Spot Blind Item: A Little Red Light In Greenpoint?
Friday night the Mister and I decided to patronize one of our favorite restaurants. over dinner I mused about how long said establishment had been in business and, as luck would have it, we later received an answer! 25 years give or take. It came from an old timer supping at an adjacent table who also also told us that very eating and drinking establishment was built atop a razed brothel:
My father told me “Son, one day you will go there.” But one day I walked by and bulldozers were tearing it down. It even had a red light out front.
One may or may not care this gentleman’s father’s parenting skills but we do have to him thank in part for this most intriguing blind item! Anyone care to take a stab at what (aptly named) restaurant this man is talking about?
P.S.: I will post the reveal this evening. Here it is! Yes folks, as I was eating my favorite dish at this establishment, Linguini ala Puttanesca, I learned about some very real ladies of the evening who once graced Greenpoint’s own McGuinness Boulevard!
