Sorry, Can't Be Fixed!


Another Old Brooklyn Fixture Biting The Dust?
Looks as though the G & D Television store on Henry at the corner of Atlantic is being emptied of old T.V. sets. A huge dumpster right in front of the place was filled to the rim with them. Anyone know what's next for this place?

I'm not surprised, but will miss that weird place. You couldn't even get inside with old electronics piled up to the ceiling. I once brought in a radio to be fixed--I think it was two years ago--and finally had to give up on getting it back. (The repair guy was looking for "a part".) I will miss this anachronistic oddity.

It is one of those places that everyone took for granted and will miss now that is gone.
I wonder if your radio was in that huge dumpster.

Yeah another one! Well I guess that's part of life...
For example, I think of Trader's Joe as a good news for our neighbourhood

I am still wondering who is going to take the Blockbuster spot on Court! Hopefully not a bank or a CVS...

I am wondering myself. It is quite a space. But it is too big for a bank. So unfortunately I think another drug store may be more interested in the site. We don't have a Duane Reade yet...that would be a change from Rite-Aid and CVS.
There used to be a sporting goods store in there about 12-15 years ago.
Before then, it was a store that sold some of the ugliest lamps I have ever seen.

Katia-
The Blockbuster is rumored to be the site of a (yes,again) Micky D's. This was announced in passing by a developer at a meeting I attended about 10 days ago.
I don't know who would be able to verify the rumor.

Katia,
Once again, the Micky D's rumor has surfaced. This time it was announced by a developer at a meeting I attended about 10 days ago.
