Few Doors Open Monday Along Montague Street Retail Corridor

At noon Monday, a vast majority of restaurants and retailers along Brooklyn Heights’ Montague Street corridor were shuttered for the day. Among those open: Custom House, Connecticut Muffin, Subway, Lassen & Hennig, Heights Deli & Convenience, Le Pain Quotidien, Montague Street Bagels and, uh, Verizon Wireless(?). Key Food was also open, with lines out the door as customers were methodically let in. All Starbucks in NYC have been ordered closed.

Several businesses—including Ricky’s NYC, Armando’s, Thai Kitchen and The Heights Salon—failed to heed Homer Fink’s missive that taping windows is basically bunk. The only damage seen… so far… was a toppled newspaper box at the corner of Montague and Henry streets. More pics below. (Main image: Hanco’s/CT)

    Not smart to be outside right now. They’re showing a lot of trees coming down on all the local television stations. Hopefully our trees don’t suffer too much damage.

    Wind definitely picking up.

    At mid-afternoon, eating choices on Montague were these (quite a few!): Vegetarian Ginger (yum!), Subway, Lassen & Hennig, MontyQ, Custom House, Nanatori, Lichee Nut and Happy Days (always open!). On Remsen: WiPi and Curry House.

    We had lunch at Custom House after I popped my head in there this morning when I saw they had the door open…it was packed. Good move on their part to be open; I’m sure they had food that would spoil if they didn’t use it today.
