The Hole In The Wall Deli is also a grocery. It's a deli/grocery. It's a bodega.
Call it ungentrification? New hair salons, bodegas, barber shops...maybe Franklin Avenue has become too expensive and Washington is considerably cheaper.
By the way, re: the sports bar that is taking over the Minor Arcana space: I am so pissed off that the stupid community board brushed aside the reputable, caring, concerned owners of Freddie's bar and then allowed a lame sports bar to open instead. This place is trouble, just watch. It's a self perpetuating cycle, and now the community board will have more ammunition to fight the opening of new bars on Washington Avenue once someone gets into a brawl outside of this one.
