This must have sprung up near overnight because I haven’t noticed it all. There’s a new vet opening on nassau and eckford. Maybe you reported on this and I haven’t seen the post, but they are in the phase where the IT guy is involved (he’s who I spoke to there) so they must be pretty far along.
Needless to say I headed down today without delay.
Sure enough, it would appear the Garden Spot is slated to get a veterinarian’s office! I asked the gentleman working atop the scaffolding is he had any idea as to when this establishment was going to open. He said he didn’t know. Given what I saw on the ground floor, I’d say soon.
What’s more, Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital is conveniently located off the Nassau Avenue stop of the G train and the B48 bus! But let’s defer to the experts: the hardworking chaps from National Grid working across the street. They took a keen interest in my keen interest in this establishment. After I offered to take their portrait (because they offered to take mine) we got down to brass tacks.
Me: As far as I know Greenpoint doesn’t have a veterinarian. People have to go to Long Island City or Williamsburg. This is a big deal.
National Grid Dude (talking to one of his comrades): You know, now that I think of it, I haven’t seen a veterinarian office here.
Me: It’s conveniently located near the G train and the B48 bus to boot!
N.G.B.: This is a good location. Smart move on their part.
Me: I’m going to alert my readers to this. I write a blog about north Brooklyn and I’m always getting asked about veterinarians in Greenpoint.
N.G.B.: You write a blog? Cool.
Me: Thanks. By the way, if you haven’t tried Kestane Kebab just down the street, you should. It’s very tasty.
I am pleased to report the National Grid guys have tried Kestane Kebab and found their fare tasty. I advised them to try the lentil soup next time. They promised they would. To be continued?
