The Empty Retail Curse of Brooklyn Heights

New, 1 comment

Uh oh: a corner of Brooklyn Heights may be cursed. Making the most of a slow news day, the Brooklyn Eagle explores the history of the troubled corner. Among the evidence that it might be jinxed: a potential retail space that was originally part of the Hotel St. George sits empty; 60 Henry Street, once home to a celebrated Chinese restaurant, is also empty; and a third address has been home to two restaurants in 10 years and was struck by lightning. Now there's symbolism! [BK Eagle]
