Another One Gone

Just read in the Brooklyn Paper that Bay Ridge institution Hinsch's, in business since 1948, is closed.

“Our lease is expiring and we decided not to renew it,” the note, signed “The Logue Family,” read. “Current economic conditions, customers changing eating patterns, and our desire to retire early have led us to this decision. We thank all of our customers for your business and appreciate your support and loyalty. We will miss serving you.”

Just like the Waverly diner, poised on the brink of extinction, and all those other beautiful old places.  What next - a Subway or another Starbucks?  Maybe an IHOP? And what happens to those signs?

A great loss for the neighborhood.
