There are a few changes in motion for this corner of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, the location of the old Bond Bakery building at 495 Flatbush Avenue. A tipster writes that a new beer distributor has moved into the ground floor one building over at 507 Flatbush at the corner of Lefferts, and is “catering to a diverse market who want more than just Bud Light.” They also fill growlers-to-go with on-tap craft beers. The windows of that building have also been replaced and the exterior’s generally been spruced up. As for 495 Flatbush Avenue, pictured above, the space of longtime-tenant Phat Albert’s is up for lease. The rest of the building, however, remains in poor shape, with most of the windows along Washington Avenue boarded up. The upper floors previously housed a daycare center and school. You can read about the building’s history at this Building of the Day post. You can also see a few more recent photos after the jump. Now if only someone can restore that clock tower! GMAP
