We’re losing one of our last video rental stores, Brownstoner reports. Royal Video– which has been at 317 Flatbush Avenue for 28 years– is going the way of the late Get Reel Video and closing up shop by the end of the month. Until then, they’ll be running a sale on all remaining videos. It’s always sad news to lose a local business, especially one that seems so nostalgic, but Brownstoner is correct when they note the shop is part of a “dying breed.” All eyes are now on Seventh Avenue’s Video Gallery.
And while it isn’t closing per se, there are certainly changes coming up for Fourth Avenue’s Hotel Le Bleu, which Brownstoner also reports is newly on the market. The seven-story property, consisting of 48 rooms plus rooftop restaurant and lounge, is listed by CPEX Real Estate for $12 million.
