From The New York Shitty Inbox: Greenpoint Coffee House To Close?
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Perhaps you’ve blogged about this, perhaps not. Rumor has it that Greenpoint Coffee House will close at end of March!
THIS CAN”T HAPPEN!
I was just chatting with barista there and I said we need to start a petition, raise some funds, or contact NewYorkShitty, or both!!! so, I’m contacting you…
This place, IMHO, has the quintessential Greenpoint charm. A faded beauty with thinning veneer of nostalgia…
It has a comfort that other places don’t…
realistically, not sure what can be done. BUT…thought it worth telling this valuable observer of all things Greenpoint….
I heard rumblings about this back in September 2008. I was told the landlord refused to renew their lease— but they still had the better part of two years left on the current one. Sounds like this was more or less spot on. If anyone reading this has more information about what’s going on at 195 Franklin Street do share. Inquiring minds (and Greenpoint caffeine addicts) want to know!
