New York Shitty Day Ender: A New Bodega For North Greenpoint
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
In addition to learning the good news about “El Blablazo”, I was pleased as punch to see the long-vacant space at 1068 Manhattan Avenue finally has a tenant. What’s more, it will be a bodega (or as I like to call them “deligros”).
Anyone who lives north of Freeman Street will attest that is there is a dearth of quality grocery stores (and many other necessities, like laundromats, for example) in far north Greenpoint. Hopefully Mini Mart will be a first step in redressing this. When will it open, you ask? I do not know— but I am going to keep swinging by until I can find someone to ask!

And that’s all she wrote.
UPDATE, October 16, 2009: This will be a 24 hour bodega. Huzzah!
