The Old Weinstein Hardware Building in Bed Stuy Is Gone


    We were surprised to see a big empty lot where the old Weinstein hardware store stood when we drove by 420 Tompkins Avenue over the weekend. Of course we knew demo was coming, and we won’t miss the old building, but still, it’s a big change for this prominent corner in Bed Stuy.

    Weinstein, although it closed a few years ago, stood here for decades and was an important store in the community. Click through to see inside the fence.
