Coming To Greenpoint: A Bike Shop & A Homeless Shelter?

If the folks fixing up 1078 Manhattan Avenue (the former digs of Greenpoint Furniture) are to be believed this former will be the case! They did not divulge the name of their establishment, however, they said they were shooting for a September 1 opening date. So there have you!

New Bike Shop
Opening Date: September 1, 2010
1078 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

And closing on a decidedly different note it has been brought to my attention that 400 McGuinness Boulevard may very well become a homeless shelter. Here’s the forwarded email I received from a tipster. It comes from the Manager of Community Board 1:

Not only is this a hop-skip from our soon-to-be new bike shop, but this “assessment center”, if green-lighted, will be a turd’s toss from the Newtown Creek Nature Walk. Fascinating.

P.S.: If what I saw walking by today is any indication, it would also appear the Garden Spot Cafe may be ready to open its doors. Soon.
