Times they are a-changin', Fort Greene-Clinton Hill.
Thursday saw the dawn of a new school year for one million city schoolchildren, the grand opening of BAM Fisher Building and another day closer to the Sept. 28 debut of Barclays Center.
And that's not all.
At least three new venues—replacing long-established businesses—will soon add their names to the neighborhood's already bustling eating and drinking scene.
Here's a quick peek:
Cammareri Bakery, 1 S. Elliott Place, formerly
This sit-down bakery selling sandwiches will replace Carol's Daughter, which has occupied a corner lot opposite Brooklyn Tech since 1996. in a move that seemed to signal for many Patch readers . According to CB2 District Manager Robert Perris, the Health, Environment and Social Services Committee recommended Wednesday that Cammareri's application for a liquor license for wine sales be approved by CB2's Executive Committee.
Prospect, 773 Fulton St, formerly
, featuring an American-inspired seafood menu, is one of the most anticipated openings in Brownstone Brooklyn. With an interior adorned with pieces of Coney Island boardwalk, this restaurant owned by Packer Collegiate classmates Alan Cooper and Stephen Cohen seeks to succeed where Aqualis Grill's Mediterranean-style offerings failed.
Splitty, 415 Myrtle Ave., formerly
Students at Pratt Institute will have to either find another dive bar to frequent or wait for the opening of Splitty, a full bar serving food with a backyard garden. An insider on Brownstoner called the move an “interesting case of a gentrifier being out gentrified."
