Heard it from a friend who (lives in Turner Towers, and)...heard it from a friend who (works in a another place of business on the block and)...heard it from the guys who own the Key Food across the street, that a Trader Joe's will be moving in to the majestic-looking bank building on Washington Avenue, between Lincoln Place and St. Johns Place in Prospect Heights. Holy. Shit!
But, don't feel bad for the Key Food guys, because they also told our anonymous source that they have already made a deal to turn it into a Duane Reade. Do feel a little worried for Ludwig's Drug Store, the small mom and pop shop a few doors down from the Key Food (and possible future Duane Reade).
So, is it true? As we know from the Cobble Hill location, TJ's lurves them a former bank building, and the Capital One is definitely history. But, some of us over here in Prospect Heighs remember when the rumors swirled about retail space on the ground floor of the Richard Meier building, so we should all take it with a grain of salt. Really cheap salt.
