Hungry Ghost, the chain of coffee shops quickly becoming ubiquitous in Brooklyn, is opening new shops in Park Slope and Williamsburg.
This will bring the number of locations to 11 in New York City and eight in Brooklyn. The Park Slope location is 156 7th Avenue, at the corner of Garfield Place and two blocks from Prospect Park, while the Williamsburg outpost will be at 231 Bedford Avenue.
Most recently, the Park Slope space was occupied by Market Table by Cafe M, which opened in the fall of 2017 and closed in September 2018 because of a “dispute with the landlord,” according to a story in Patch. Before that, it was occupied for a number of years by a market, first called Garfield Farm Market and then, by 2016, New Apple Tree.
In Williamsburg, it takes the place of Whisk, which opened in 2008. It closed at the end of April, according to a story in Gothamist, because the landlords asked for $26,500 a month for rent, which was a 44 percent hike above what they previously paid.
This will be the coffee chain’s second location in Williamsburg, following the opening of a shop at 721 Metropolitan Avenue, between Manhattan and Graham Avenues. Elsewhere in Brooklyn, they have two locations in Prospect Heights at 253 Flatbush Avenue and 183 Sterling Place, and three in Fort Greene, one at 781 Fulton Street, the second at 80 Dekalb Avenue and third inside the Gotham Market at 590 Fulton Street.
