According to the Q at Parkside, TD Bank is coming to the old site of KFC on Bedford Avenue (across the street from Ebbets Field).
1715 Bedford, back when it was a functioning KFC
That picture also looks like it was from before the Burger King moved in across the street on Bedford and Sullivan.
I think this is a promising step in the right direction. The KFC spot has been boarded up and vacant for months. At least it's not another fast food joint.
I'm kinda surprised the Checkers/Rally's place hasn't ever opened by McDonalds.
The Checkers site has some DOB violations (and fines) on it that are still open, but apparently no stop work orders. The street address for the site is apparently 43 Empire Boulevard, by the way.
We jabbered about Checkers here:
Congrats on getting a bank! Hopefully folks will use it as opposed to those check cashing places.
Of course. Right after I got rid of TD for being too lazy to go to the Park Slope branch (the nearest one)
I walked past the former KFC over the weekend (Late August 2013) and can confirm there is now a construction fence complete with banners that say "TD Bank Coming Soon"
The KFC it's almost gone now. There is a kind of shell left... after a long wait it looks like this bank will arrive soon.
