"Happy retirement wishes to Tony. All we have left now is Mazzone and Bruno's, each at the opposite far ends of Court Street. I don't foresee either of them closing for many, many years to come, but it won't be long before Carroll Gardens lacks the vital everyday neighborhood services that its residents need. We're gradually turning into an "urban suburb"... need hardware items, a supermarket, or non-artisanal, grossly overpriced groceries? You'll have to get into your car (if you have one) and drive elsewhere."
