Cataloging non-blight on Vanderbilt Avenue

Despite the presence of the eastern end of a "blighted" Atlantic Yards project site, "Almost every corner along the stretch of Vanderbilt Avenue that runs through Prospect Heights is home to an eatery or drinkery of note," according to Brooklyn Based.

Of particular note are Woodwork, on Vanderbilt between Pacific and Dean streets, and Weather Up, at Dean Street, both immediately across the street from the staging/construction zone slated to be a massive surface parking lot.

(Woodwork got notice in Time Out New York this past February.)

Of course, the Branded Saloon, which gets a plug as "the kind of place where Wyatt Earp would feel right at home," was the scene of an early morning stabbing on September 30.

  1. Don't forget one of my favorite spots on Vanderbilt at Pacific: Cornelius.
