Red Hook Methadone Clinic Closes (Well, Moves)


Chalk one up for Team Gentrification in Red Hook. Per a tipster, the Narco Freedom Methadone Clinic at 134 Van Dyke Street has shut down (a move that should free up some seats on the Ikea shuttle, if this article is to be believed) and is relocating to 561 Court Street. The question now is what will be become of the one-story commercial building that trucker Peter Vetri built in the early 1960s. A 2006 article in the Brooklyn Paper reported that a 24-unit development was in the works for the 65-by-200-foot property but all we could find in DOB records was a request to convert the space from a medical facility to a “contractor’s establishment.” The property was purchased in October 2007 for $2,100,000, a price that suggests more ambition than a storage facility for sheetrock. Anyone know what the plan is? GMAP
