The Heart of Brooklyn (located in a small storefront on Washington near EP) is seeking ideas on what kind of NEW businesses you would like to fill the twenty-four (24) still empty storefronts on Washington Avenue.
Sorry, they aren't interested in hearing from people who would like even more Food/Bars and Hair/Nail Salons.
They are looking for NEW businesses that the community would financially support. Entities that you think would be economically sustainable.
If they get some good ideas, they will actively out reach to businesses in other parts of the city providing similar services and "pitch" the benefits of opening a location here.
In addition to getting ideas via this thread and other web means, they will be requesting input at the Economic Development Committee of Community Board 8. This committee will next meet on Feb 12, 2013 at 6:30pm at CNR on 727 Classon Avenue, corner of Park Place.
Please note: whynot_31 does not represent Heart of Brooklyn or CB 8. This post merely solicits comments that will be forwarded to them.
Let the jabbering commence....
Mods: Sorry for the double post. Washington Ave is the dividing line between PH and CH, so I figured two posts was the way to go.
