Clinton Hill is blowing up! So much so that I've been enlisted to help cover my little section of the nabe - and since I live really close to Myrtle Avenue around Pratt I figure it'll be the first place I cover.
I've been living in Clinton Hill long enough to remember the KFC being open next to the Pratt Post Office on Myrtle Avenue. It's been closed now for a couple of years with the building being empty and abandoned until recently.
Last week I noticed a giant crane knocking the old KFC building down and there's been a flurry of construction activity ever since.
Anyone know what's being built in it's place? I'm hoping for a CVS Pharmacy. This area sure could use one.
A little further up at 559 Myrtle Avenue is Cafe Martino.
The menu has a decent selection of breakfast and lunch choices with a slight bent towards Latin America.
The hours are 7am to 7pm weekdays and 8am to 6pm on weekends.
A full food review coming soon.
There's been a lots of recent residential construction activity too.
First, there's this monstrosity being built on the corner of Myrtle and Steuben.
And these 3 new developments on Grand.
I'll swing by and take updated construction photos as these building get closer to completion.
More to come.
