A very nice lady named Joanna writes:

I translated the Nowy Dzennik bit you quoted in this piece http://www.newyorkshitty.com/greenpoint-goodness/94997

“In turn, from the management of the locale we found out that, indeed Polonaise Terrace will be closing and will only be functioning until the 30th of September, although he says the location has not been sold. “We will 100% be closing the restaurant at the end of September, however information regarding the sale is gossip” — said one of the managers of the firm, who also did not want to be named.”

Hope that helps a bit. Although I’ve never been to Polonaise Terrace, I’m sad to see another Polish establishment closing down.

Thanks for doing what you do!

No, thank you for the kind words and translation!

That’s right folks. Nowy Dziennik writes (thanks to a translation given by a readers named Joanna!):

In turn, from the management of the locale we found out that, indeed Polonaise Terrace will be closing and will only be functioning until the 30th of September, although he says the location has not been sold. “We will 100% be closing the restaurant at the end of September, however information regarding the sale is gossip” — said one of the managers of the firm, who also did not want to be named.

The word on the street is this building will be razed so as to building residential property. Given this building is located in a landmark district yours truly finds this interesting. Nonetheless, Nowy Dziennik concludes their tome as follows:

…In turn, according to the zoning map and the information on the Department of Buildings updated and approved by the City Council of New York on July 24 this year, shows that the region at Greenpoint Ave. is currently known. R6A zone. Changing the zoning classification allows for the construction of a 15 foot high apartment than it was before.

Hmm…
