More blight on Vanderbilt Avenue? Not if you ask Time Out New York

I wrote last month about the dubious notion of finding blight adjacent to a thriving shopping strip on Vanderbilt Avenue.

Here's another piece of evidence, from Time Out New York:
Woodwork: Vanderbilt Avenue’s position as one of Brooklyn’s emerging bar strips just got stronger with the addition of this soccer-oriented drinkery. Fans of the other football can catch all the games on three 50-inch flat-screen televisions—including early-morning broadcasts. Those with less of a passion for the sport will find other reasons to visit: Chef-owner Ross Greenberg (Aquavit) has an ambitious food menu, including homemade pickles, five-cheese truffled macaroni and cheese, and various proteins (chicken, beef, fish) cooked en papillote. The drink collection is just as serious, with a focus on small-batch whiskies, organic wines from worldwide soccer regions and hard-to-find international craft beers. 583 Vanderbilt Ave at Dean St, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (718-857-5777)
The location (formerly Indigo Blu) is catercorner to the shopping strip previously shown and directly across the street from Block 1129 of the Atlantic Yards footprint, slated to contain 1100 surface parking spots.
