A bar named 739 Franklin opened exactly two weeks ago on Franklin Avenue, near the corner of Sterling Place. I Love Franklin Avenue has already covered it extensively. When we checked it out yesterday, we learned that it is a neighborhood bar owned by nearby residents who are looking to evolve depending on what their clientele would like to see offered. There are four beers on tap, but specialty cocktails are the main order of the day; there are happy hour specials ($4 pints) and food will eventually be served. There are a couple more photos of the space on the jump. It has a large back room with a projection screen, and events such as movie nights will be a regular feature.

This three-story-plus-basement brownstone at 101 Macon Street has lots of pretty details and is currently set up as a triplex over a garden-floor rental. There’s a whimsical screen, stained glass, eight very nice late 19th-century mantels, and what looks like two original windows. Most buyers will probably want to update, although the bathrooms and kitchens […]
This loft at 50 Bridge Street in Dumbo has been on the market since the summer for $699,000. While the 980-square-foot pad is not as fancy as most apartments in Dumbo these days, it is priced relatively inexpensively and is in move-in condition. So what’s the hold-up? Could be that the low-ceiling mezzanine that rings […]
