Goodbye awesome, low-key, tourist-free dining establishment. Hello J. Crew showroom, or whatever the hell replaces you. It’s not clear if they were kicked out by a rent-hiking, greedy landlord, but you just know they were.
Sad news for BBQ lovers, but the popular south Williamsburg restaurant is getting pushed out by developers “intent on knocking down the building.” At least we’ll still have Fette Sau and Mable’s (for now). The owners of Delaney BBQ posted a statement this morning on Facebook: In 2012, when I had the wacky idea to […]
As Gothamist reports, Hail Mary is the latest casualty in a mass number of shutdowns in the past six months. Hail Mary, the cute gourmet “diner” on Greenpoint Avenue, closed over the weekend after less than a year in the neighborhood. This is sad news for mac and cheese lovers, funfetti fanatics, and anyone who […]
Apparently, Cubana Social is yet another casualty of rent hikes as Williamsburg becomes more and more unaffordable. A longtime FreeWilliamsburg favorite, we’re going to miss their Cuban-style, slow-roasted pork which was a staple for the neighborhood.

They’re still serving drinks at the Turkey’s Nest and slinging slices at Vinnie’s. Still, it’s hard not to lament all that has changed: The William […]
As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Norm Brodsky recently rejected the city’s measly $100 million offer for Bushwick Inlet Park. Days are numbered to make a deal, so this weekend bring your tent and join the protest. This Saturday July 9th at 7pm, join Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, Open Space Alliance for […]
Another day, another round of shutdowns. This time, its Williamsburg’s Grand Victory: Since the cat has been let out of the bag I’ll make it official.
In case you hadn’t heard the depressing news, Other Music is closing: As sales of physical music continue to plummet, a no-frills independent record store makes increasingly less sense as a business: Other Music will shut its doors and mail-order service on June 25, more than 20 years after its debut in this once artistically […]
