Spotted At 195 Franklin Street: Closed For Good?

The old(er)-timers reading this tome might recall this establishment’s previous incarnation: the Greenpoint Coffee House. This establishment was quite popular and its closure was the source of much distress— and anger— to a great many people in this community. If what I saw passing by on any given day was any indication, it would appear that its successor never quite caught on. As for what will happen next— that is for us to wait and see. The sign clearly states that while closed for good, a new restaurant will open under new management next year. Hmm…

This news (which will undoubtedly make a number of this establishment’s neighbors very happy) comes from the head of the 94th Precinct himself! D. I. Hurson (who forwarded me the above photograph) writes:

FYI we closed Club Europa last night. After numerous incidents, that included Assaults, underage drinking, and a shooting.

50% off everything at the Salvation Army on Bedford & North 7.   They are selling everything before they close for renovations!   Yes, the Sally’s is getting a facelift.   They are gonna reopen in 2013.   It will be 3 floors with an elevator taking people from the ground floor up to the long unused second floor and the unknown basement.  The employees will be transferred to other stores so no one is losing their jobs which is good to know…

Jon (who took the above photograph) muses:

I always thought this place was toxic to everyone except the tourists!

Given that Mrs. Kim’s was shut down recently as well it makes me wonder if the Health Department is specifically targeting north Brooklyn eateries nowadays. In any case, if you want to see something really scary check out Sea’s recent inspection by the Department of Health. They got a whopping 53 points* for harboring creatures which quite frankly I didn’t know existed. Until today, that is. Whoa.

It would appear that Mediterranean Shawarma is no longer with us. For those of you keeping track this means the closest place (and to my knowledge: ONLY) to get lentil soup is Kestane Kebab. Bummer.
