Storefronting: Banks, Brooklyn & Beer

1) Harlem: According to blogger Joe Schumacher, 117th and Malcolm X is the banking capital of Harlem: "The Carver Bank has been there about four years but the Wachovia and Bank of America branches on the west side of Malcolm X look like they will be opening very soon. One of those buildings above is also home to the good people, and animal(s), of Harlem Fur. The fourth corner is a schoolyard." [WATPA?]
2) Williamsburg: It's always nice/risky when businesses move out of the mini-mall/Realform Girdle Building, amd here's another one: "Bedford Cheese Shop, which is located in the Mini-Mall, is moving at the end of the summer into the old pharmacy on the corner of Bedford and N4th st. the site had been previously been a used bookstore called Clovis."
