Bed-Stuy, as we all know, has a huge shortage of bodegas and cheap grocery stores. So now we can start saying “Oh thank Heaven,” because faceless Slurpee-slinging mega-corporation 7-Eleven is opening up at 1239 Fulton Street. It’s not Bed-Stuy’s first 7-Eleven, and presumably they won’t be selling roti, so Ali’s Trinidad Roti Shop up the block won’t have anything to worry about. If 7-Eleven starts undercutting them though, there’s gonna be trouble. What does this mean for Bed-Stuy’s “new Williamsburg” designation? Probably nothing, since Williamsburg has a Starbucks.
It's that time of year again! Go get a cheap, permanent, and spooky mark on your body just in time for Halloween.
Probably New York will pay for this in the long run, but for now, free LEDs for everyone (in these select eastern BK neighborhoods).
As if the stoop weren't already a perfect entity representing all that is good and holy about Brooklyn, not it is also being used as a performance venue.
