    I’m already looking forward to the Grand Closing. Hopefully, we will eventually get more business that actually cater to daily life needs, than these almost useless mall-type specialty stores.

    Well, actually, the products are good, though very, very, very, very, very, very expensive. (Did I mention that the products’ll cost ya?)

    The wonder is that Kiehl’s thinks its got a market in BH, where, as we know, people don’t groom themselves. Perhaps they’re angling for the yuppy young-uns of nearby nabes.

    A reminder for those to whom such things matter: Kiehl’s products include ingredients tested on animals.

  • Skeezix

    It’s a funny turn of events for Kiehl’s to be seen as a mall store, considering that for decades the only way to get their products was to go to their one location on the Lower East Side. (I admit their products seem ubiquitous nowadays.) Perelandra, back when it first opened on Montague Street in the late 1970s, was one of the first stores other than Kiehl’s that was allowed to carry Kiehl’s products.

    Here’s an FAQ where they talk about their use of products test on animals. According to this, it’s less than 1 percent of their tests. I don’t know what means in practical terms. There are probably independent groups like Peta that have delved into this further:

    Boo. I’m a grumpy old man in Brooklyn Heights who hates any kind of change! It was much better when it was another realty agency!

    Boo, I remember when there was a meat market and a bakery at that location. What is kind of business is more useful to the community in your mind?

    LOL, Skin care products are one of the biggest sucker products ever devised by marketers.

    Poetry, AEB!

    i agree. go for the meat market and bakery.. how many stores selling cosmetics does one street need?

  • Fritz

    Does anyone remember when this was a pizza place? Before the realtor. Can’t say I’m sad to see the real estate office go.

  • MonroeOrange

    they should put a meat market and bakery in the library!…by the way, your queens library pres makes 350k a year…no wonder we can’t keep our library functioning…time to start looking at all those people you have been supporting Marsha…

  • Teresa

    Loved that pizza place. I think Heights Falafel is owned/run by the same people.

    Good job proving what a jerk you are.
