A neighbor sent word on Monday that Brooklyn Finest Market, located at 550 4th Avenue, at 15th Street, had closed its doors. Sure enough, the gates have been down every time we’ve walked by this week.
As noted on the city’s Department of Buildings website, the store had been undergoing a deli renovation for the past several months, though recently, it appeared that their progress had stalled. The most recent permit expired in April of this year.
We found no recent sales online, there are no signs posted on the doors, and the store has no known website, so the cause of the closure is a bit of a mystery. Does anyone out there have the scoop? Are we looking at the future home of another corner condo building?
