Socrates Gets “Chopped”

Socrates Diner, 11222

A few months ago my fellow Greenpointer 11222 noted that Socrates Diner was closing. I learned this week that this is not entirely true. Socrates is still with us, they simply leased out the northern section of their store front.

What kind of business now occupies this space, you ask?

1 Bedroom, $1,400

Another fucking real estate broker, that’s who. I cannot decide which is more ridiculous: the recent (and massive) proliferation of real estate offices here or paying $1,400 a month for a one bedroom apartment on Siegel Street. Both are equally absurd (and loathsome) in my book.

  2. Maybe its just me, but everytime I pass that place I can’t help but think of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. I can’t even remember the last time I didn’t pronounce Socrates as “so-crates”, And yes i agree, it seems like every new store front to open around here, espically on Bedford Ave, it is for a real estate office.

Tell me what you're thinking...
