JJ’s Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge, which had been on the corner of Flushing and Washington Avenues, spent its last few years as a strip club. It is being divided up into a Dunkin’ Donuts and a Subway as we speak.
In a few years, all stores will be banks, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and Subway.
A few years after that, I’ll be torn down for a Dunkin’ Donuts.
Also vanishing this week is the Holiday Lounge on St. Mark’s, where I got drunk a lot in college, and Bleecker Bob’s. I wasn’t a Bleecker Bob’s record buyer — when I was buying vinyl, I’d go to Venus and Sounds on 8th or St. Marks, or even Tower, where the prices were good and I would typically emerge with 7 or 8 platters without spending $50.
