Neighborhood Watch: Bullseye on Carroll Gardens

New, 14 comments

At Hicks and Union Streets, an artist has been hard at work hand-painting a brick wall on the outside of the Coffee Den with an ad...for Target. Lost City is lukewarm about this corporate invasion: "Inside the Coffee Den, people are already bitching at the ad. 'It's great a local artist gets work, but Target?' said one. That's generally how I feel. I pass by that wall pretty often, and I don't relish having to look upon some vague representation of the kind of lifestyle I might lead if I only shopped at huge, enervating, big-box stores more often."
