Hey Heather,

How are you? Long time, no chat. Any idea what’s up with the storefront with the sign reading “Best Margherita” on Norman between Jewel and Diamond?

There was a flurry of activity going on there up until about two weeks ago and now nothing.

It’d be nice to have a place to get a slice around there.

This sounded eerily familiar so I poked around the New York Shitty archives. Sure enough, my instincts were spot on!

NOTE: the above blog post hails from May 30th, 2012. Clearly the “three month” estimate was a bit off. Nonetheless, a pizzeria 172 Norman Avenue will be!

Hi there Miss Heather-

Any idea whats going to be built on the corner of Eagle and Franklin?

Looks like some new restaurant or something might be going in there.


Per the very nice fellow working on said property today 75 Eagle Street will be (and I quote) “a sandwich shop with some groceries”. Given how long this storefront has been vacant and its proximity to Barge Park this could be a very good development! In any case, I left my business card in the hope the owner of this establishment will contact me. Let’s see…

Sandwich Shop/Grocery Store
Opening Date: Unknown
75 Eagle Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

P.S.: While I am on the subject of foodstuffs, today I got word that 172 Norman Avenue (as seen above) is going to be a pizzeria. Per the very nice men working there it should be up and running in “about three months”. So there have you!
