Openings and Closings On Myrtle Avenue

My little photographic stroll down Myrtle Avenue.(With Commentary!)

Crown Fried Chicken. Yum. Really. Yum. I'm serious. This one on Myrtle is the best of all the Crown's around too. (No, they are not all the same.) Beats the DeKalb/Classon and Fulton/Washington branches hands down.

Another liquor store? Or is this a new sign?

The juice place didn't last too long huh? And in it's place another deli...great.

This looks promising. Chez Lola. New restaurant? New bar? Whatever it is I'm excited! Anyone have any information on this?

A new Yoga/Dance place coming soon. Location is across from Polish Beauty Bar.

Now here's something you don't see everyday. A McDonald's closing. Granted, it was only a McDonald's Express but I'm still surprised. Chicken Rings. Can we at least pretend it's real chicken? Just a little? Please? But I'm glad to see that take credit cards, you know, like all the classy establishments.

And last but not least...

New condos on the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Kent Street called 609 Myrtle. (Catchy but unimaginative.)

Looks okay from the outside and I'm digging the high ceilings and big windows.

Interior pictures are here along with the units still available and prices. It's relatively affordable considering.

I do have issues with the descriptions (read the Neighborhood description for a bit of a laugh) and the fact that they're advertising it as Clinton Hill and not Bed-Stuy. It's clearly Bed-Stuy according to the Boundaries post.

Should we start calling this area Clinton Hill East?

Just looking around the area is still relatively undeveloped without any nice shops or amenities. It's a bit of a hike to the Classon Avenue stop on the G train, too.

Anyway, there's an open house today, Wednesday August 16th, from 6pm-8pm.

Check it out and please let us know what you think.
