Hmmm. New windows for Phats? An eagle-eyed reader popped this picture and noted the construction permit covers the first and second floors of this southern portion of the building.
Then the Q checked in with Albert Srour, owner of the one-time bakery itself, and guess what? He confirmed that Planet Fitness will be moving in, taking over at least the second floor of this two-story part of the building.
No more excuses. You MUST get in shape by next summer...
AND Albert just added that he'd like to see a nice restaurant open in up in the building. Wonder where? As of yet he has no plan to shut down his namesake store. But...
C'mon, there's gotta be a Brooklyn investor/restauranteur who could make it worth his while. Anyone? Btw, if you're initials are T.G.I.F. or your last name is Appleby? The place is already rented, sorry,
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
