Coming to 917 Manhattan Avenue: More Garden

First the Graham Electronics sign came down (revealing lovely brickwork, as seen above), then I was tipped of and today, lo, I spied a building permit confirming it: the Garden, a much-beloved Greenpoint institution is expanding into 917 Manhattan Avenue.

Those of you who are familiar with how congested this establishment can get (as I do) will undoubtedly agree this is a wonderful development— as is the addition of customer bathrooms. Really. I am not kidding!

Anyhoo, those of you who have the time/ability, do give the surviving cast iron work and masonry a look. It’s a nice little peek of the past.


Tell me what you're thinking...
