Happenings At 842 Manhattan Avenue

Derelict since Ricky’s saw fit to depart last year it would appear that this storefront is poised for its newest incarnation. Per a source close to the landlord, 842 Manhattan Avenue is slated to become a juice bar/cafe and tanning salon. While I cannot muster much enthusiasm for such establishments (tanning is not my cup of tea), my tipster brought up a very salient point:

I don’t really care what it is as long as it isn’t another 99 Cent Store or a bank. We already have too damned many of those already.

Very true. Anyone care to take bets as to when the Feds will take over/bail out Washington Mutual? Will it be before or after they open their new location here in Greenpoint?

  2. As I walked down Manhattan Ave yesterday, I noticed the plywood is gone and you can now see the Wamu in its glory.

    Tanning? Really? People still do that?

Tell me what you're thinking...
