I'd be dismayed if I saw another coffee shop, for sure. But I was so hoping for something...else. Like the Tarzian Housewares store of my dreams or a classic American diner or a nice wine store or any number of things. Oh well. I guess we'll see if it is successful or not.
a. Yes, Starbucks will open a location at EP and Franklin this fall.b. The pizza place at Prospect and Franklin is Roscoe's.c. The diner at Classon and St. Marks is Neptune II....while none of these western Crown Heights places are "huge destinations", the area around Nostrand will also get similar places over the next few years.Afterall, I don't think any of these 3 places were around 5 years ago.
