Sad day in Crown Heights. The neighborhood’s historic Starlite Lounge at 1086 Bergen Street has been replaced by a Metro PCS. We had heard this awhile ago as a rumor from Nostrand Park while the building was under construction. But now it’s confirmed: one of Brooklyn’s oldest gay bars and its first black-owned gay bar is just another soulless storefront devoid of its past life.
