What a bummer! I never did get around to trying it, but I know it had a lot of fans on these boards.
I was away for a few months, and walking up the avenue this morning, from eastern parkway to atlantic, I was surprised by just how many storefronts are now shuttered. I'd say it's easily over 50%. It makes Nostrand feel very abandoned. Did this happen in other neighborhoods (prospect heights, park slope) as well? That as landlords decided to warehouse their retail spaces, the neighborhood went through a pretty desolate stage?
