The storefront at 209 Smith Street at Baltic Street has been empty for more than two years now. It was once the home of Faan, an Asian fusion restaurant for ten years. It was replaced by the short-lived Burger on Smith, which closed in May 2013.
Last September, Ricky's opened a seasonal halloween store at this location, but closed shortly afterwards. This fall, it appears that Spirit Halloween will be running a temporary shop in the space.
In the meantime, the 5,600 SF storefront is still listed by Thor Equities.
Here is the description:
"40 feet of prime frontage on Smith Street and approximately 5,600 SF across two levels offer endless opportunities. A corner property, 209 Smith St. will be seen by countless pedestrians perusing the local restaurants and shops."
Neighboring Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill, two of Brooklyn’s most fashionable shopping districts, Smith Street boasts many trendy tenants. Hip retailers, in addition to Brooklyn’s most illustrious restaurants, have made Smith Street a chic destination for locals and tourists alike."
