For years, Clinton Hillers have been wondering when their stretch of Fulton Street would start attracting the types of retail businesses that have marked Fort Greene’s transition over the past decade; in the past year, in fact, the Pratt Area Community Council has even taking to leading group tours of empty storefronts to try to attract tenants. Well, maybe the time has come. Before the end of the summer, a new bar is scheduled to open at 925 Fulton Street, between Waverly and Clinton Avenues; it’ll be called Hanson Dry after the dry cleaners that occupied the space once upon a time. It’s going to be a relatively straightforward affair, with eight or so beers, mostly local, on tap and some outdoor space to boot. What makes the news particularly interesting is that while owner is a first-timer, his partners in the project include the folks behind Franklin Park, Southpaw, Cornelius and Soda Bar. That’s some solid validation. Let’s hope it spurs other entrepreneurs to invest in the area. We could really use a place to buy good meat, fish and cheese near the C train!
