Aileen, I don’t know, a take out restaurant like the store right next to it? Either way, that entire block is an eyesore- one smoke shop won’t change anything.


gnan I like your refreshing attitude. welcome to the site. another store that is filled lets hope it stays that way. We all need to shop our stores where it is a bid or not. Bid does not come down this far but conelly is working on a bid not sure if is down this far or just for woodside area. So I could be wrong.


moan and groan;thats all u guys ever do on this site.why dont u get out and smell the roses!!!!:)

Pros: Nice clean sign. Not on my block, nor directly across from where I live. One less empty store.

Cons: everything else.

This store replaced the realtor that went under. At least try and make it an elegant smoke shop rather than just another bodega.

Overall sentiment on this shop opening: sad.
