"Unfortunately, with the rapid rise of rents on Smith Street, I say there is at least a 50% chance we are going to see another nail salon in the near future, as they seem to be one of the few businesses with adequate revenues to afford Smith Street.
For some reason (which I do not fully understand) there seems to be an insatiable demand for manicures.
I fear Smith Street is going to become 7th Avenue in Park Slope. There used be interesting restaurants and shops on 7th Avenue, and now it seems there are nail salons, real estate agents and cell phone stores...and a few chain stores. All the interesting businesses migrated to 5th Avenue in search of more affordable rent."
