Gowanus on the Move
I'd been meaning to get down to Hamilton Plaza for a while, but was distracted by other stuff. So life goes. Finally I found a little time. Of the older commercial businesses in the Plaza, only Big J's liquor store is still open. They'll be around until the end of the month, and then they're off to Red Hook, right off Hamilton Avenue on Clinton. They hope to be open in the new location by the end of March.
I cut through Lowe's parking lot and headed back up 9th. A community-oriented yoga studio, Abyaha Yoga, opened up last fall, but the next-door, high-end, antique furniture store Find appears to have closed. Price wise, Find wasn't much of one for me. Up a block, the grocery turned Alcoholics Anonymous center is now a hand-crafted furniture store, Creation Therrien.
