Culture on the Cheap
What’s Up At 762 Manhattan Avenue?*
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
This questioned was posited to me some time ago by a reader. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to locate her email. Otherwise I would excerpt it here. Anyhoo, I do recall her voicing concerns that this storefront would be occupied by American Apparel. I am writing this post to let her know she can lay her worries to rest.
As I was walking by today I spied a few gentleman standing out front. I asked them what was slated to occupy this space and they told me: a General Nutrition Center. I refrained from pointing out there is a General Nutrition Center located inside the Rite Aid at 783 Manhattan Avenue because I felt it was not my business to do so. In any case, it is proof positive once again that Greenpoint’s Law of Overabundance is alive and well!

*Which some of you might recall was the scene of a fatal— and completely inexcusable— scaffolding accident.
