The dry cleaner at 410 Court Street at the corner of First Street has been closed for a few months now, but on Monday, the door was open and a peek inside revealed that the place was being totally gutted. Workers were carrying out buckets the debris as dust billowed out of the storefront.
When asked, I was told that the place was in the process of being converted into a restaurant, but further questioning as to what kind was met with an enigmatic smile. Department of Buildings permits confirm the conversion.
When I enquired further if the Magic Fountain ice cream parlor next door at 412 Court Street was going to be part of the restaurant space, he said yes, though that store has remained open so far.
Before it was a laundromat, the space was occupied by a pharmacy, according to my friends Rita and Gloria, who grew up in the neighborhood.
So Carroll Gardens has lost another laundromat and gained yet another restaurant.
What's your feeling, dear reader? Does this neighborhood need a restaurant or a laundromat more? Would love to hear what you have to say.
