Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: DII

The closure of “Big D” was not only lamented by many a Greenpointer but also the source of considerable speculation. Naturally the latter generally revolved around development, the opening of a chain store or, of course, another bar. As you can clearly see, gentle readers, none of these things came to pass. The word on the street/Greenpoint grapevine is (was) the partnership of Big D (rumored to be two brothers) dissolved. Hence the closure of the store, the opening of a nearly identical establishment (under one of the former partners) with new (if not terribly original) name: DII. DII opened as of 4:00 pm today and as you can clearly see, this was met with considerable interest— if not downright excitement. It is a red letter day in Garden Spot for all who relied upon the good ol’ Big D for affordable housewares, apparel, toys and whatnot!

Open as of 4:00 pm today, May 1st!
