Fading Ad Blog has been chronicling the construction of Brooklyn’s newest Target at Flatbush Junction (the intersection of Nostrand, Flatbush and Avenue H). The store is scheduled to open within the next month or so. Here’s what the blog has to say about changes to the area:
When Canal Jeans came to Flatbush, I was astounded. They were pioneers way before the first Flatbush Starbucks replaced the only decent diner on Hillel Place. Then the banks came. We already had banks, and fast food chains, and now places to buy cell phones. To replace the municipal lot where commuters would park to take the train into the city to work is a Target Superstore. Now with the Congestion Pricing plans underway, where are commuters going to park? In my driveway.
