Shayz Lounge, the beloved bar with the corny name at 130 Franklin Street, has announced that it’s closing on January 20. It’s another victim of the insane gentrification that’s hit the neighborhood.
Of course this is just further proof that when the New York Post calls Greenpoint the “hottest” neighborhood in the city, they’re really speaking to developers and fedora-wearing millennials with trust funds.
