Along with the many changes along Franklin ave, a 1st wave gentrifying business is being pushed out. A friend told me the Brooklyn Yoga Collective, which is i think "pay what you can," failed to renew its lease and is closing down. Apparently the person renting the space (living outside of NY) owns a building elsewhere on Franklin ave but i don't know where, and it didn't sound like they were willing to move the studio there. They may have a much more lucrative tenant wherever their building is.
I wonder if Michael de Zayas is pleased. I've never been to this place, though i remember when it opened. It has a nice backyard, too, which in time may become a back patio for another restaurant.
