Case In Point for Historic Districts

July 11, 2008

According to Brownstoner, a guy who has built several gross buildings already is constructing a five-story apartment building on the site of the former garden shop on South Portland, next to Cafe Lafayette.  Gross.

It’s just outside the Fort Greene Historic District.

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.
