Greene Grape Provisions: Just Us, or a Bait and Switch with Pricing

July 9, 2008

When Greene Grape Provisions opened, I remember thinking how nicely priced everything was, overall.  But each time I go, it seems less reasonable.  No joke, they tried to charge me over $3 for one plum recently, and $4 for a baguette.

It hasn’t driven me away completely — the cheese and fish selections are fantastic, and I love their salads etc.  But it’s not the regular grocery destination I thought it would be when it opened.

80 DeKalb Avenue: The Most Dangerous Construction Site in NYC?

February 11, 2008

School kids diverted into the street. Hate to harp, but, if you’re reading this, you should really take a few short, but satisfying minutes and call 311 to complain. The way that they divert people to walk in the street and set up cranes to lift heavy bits of steel over the heads of school kids. An accident seems–sadly–inevitable. (Photo is from week of 2/4.)  Thanks.

Bookstore for Clinton Hill?

January 30, 2008

I hope Clinton Hill gets its rumored bookstore, and I hope that the eventual location is in close proximity to Fort Greene.  I know that conventional wisdom says indie bookstores can’t make it anymore, but I also know a large number of people in the neighborhood who would help this new store prove that theory wrong.
