Now you know as much as I do. – http://masalagrillbk.com/ Update: It’s now open!
A new liquor store opened a few weeks ago. The store is pretty bare right now but the owner is taking requests from the ‘hood about what they’d like to see stocked. So drop in and let him know you’ll need that ’75 Cab Franc.
The Atlantis Super Wash Center (at Nevins St and Atlantic Ave) is closing May 31st. Atlantis created a new paradigm in customer service in which no verbal communication was needed to handle a transaction. Sticking to their guns, even if the customer attempted to start the transaction with a simple “Hello”, the highly trained, professional employees would adhere to their cutting edge, avant-garde service style. Sometimes, the apparent owner would work the register and it could be observed he was further refining his style by working in a series of grunts. I’m sad he was not able to perfect his new approach before, most likely, selling the property to someone who must urgently open a pediatric rehab center.
8,000 firemen showed up today to help one woman out of The Muhlenberg. The building did not appear to be on fire or smoking. However, 25 firetrucks were sure to take up all of the right lane between 4th Ave and Nevins st on Atlantic Ave. None of the firemen seems to mind the flames on the side of Hank’s.
I had previously asked what’s up at 282 Atlantic Ave (none of you were any help!). Strolling by today, finally saw some new signage. Looks like “two 8 two” will be opening in March and they’ll have “burgers • fries • beers”.

You can now track the B63 bus via GPS! Awesome news – now if only it could pick up the pace!
Anyone know the story with 282 Atlantic Ave? The notice below says there was a public meeting April 7 – i.e. a while ago. According to the NY Department of State site, Lions 95 may own a Jamaican restaurant in the Bronx.
The former Ace Liquors storefront finally reopened on Friday as a deli – saving us east-enders a run up to Bond Street for potato chips, toilet paper, or cigarettes. They don’t sell beer and the message wasn’t clear if they plan to. Nevertheless, I look forward to becoming a frequent visitor. Rumor has it their shawarma is good.
I just noticed some new banner on the YWCA building and now it’s confirmed that they’ve secured a renter for the location – Roulette Intermedium Inc.
Interestingly, the article points out other possible tenants that scoped the place: “Duane Reade, McDonald’s and a BBQ restaurant; along with gourmet stores, medical groups and even a Buddhist organization”.
“Gourmet stores” would have been nice; There’s nowhere to fucking shop around here!
