METS boo, Jets and Giants woo-hoo. The ebbs keep ebbing and the flows keep flowing in sports and on Vernon Boulevard.
Bellwether restaurant on the corner of 47th Road and Vernon Boulevard has closed and there is a sign on the door saying ‘Sorry for the inconvenience, under new management.’ Opened in 2018 by a couple that lives in LIC, the restaurant received acclaim by Michelin six months later, closed early in the pandemic, and then “re-opened” in May of 2021 by which time the fine-dining scene was a whole new landscape. We’ll keep our ‘ears’ open and keep you apprised of what’s next for the site.
And for those with pets that ate something they shouldn’t have, a new Bond Vet is coming to 47-01 Vernon Boulevard at the base of a newly completed building. Bond Vet seems to be a City MD for animals that’s growing in leaps and bounds as it chews through $170 million in private equity financing.
//I read with some dismay that four of the ‘green’ women caught on video beating and robbing some other women on the subway this weekend, lived in Queensbridge. While there may have been an air of comedy to the episode, I don’t have anything to add, nor do I choose to amplify the news volume on increased crime in the city. No doubt it’s both statistically real and tangibly visible, but there is already enough discourse and proposed ‘solutions.’ Sadly the ‘Queensbridge’ aspect didn’t come as a big surprise, but keep in mind that most of the perpetrators that live in Queensbridge most likely commit the majority of their crimes within Queensbridge. Many of which have only recently received increased citywide ‘attention.’
//HOT-pot fans rejoice, Da Yong Li Hot Pot has opened at 42-22 Crescent Street on the southern side of Queensboro Plaza. The second NYC location for an international franchise started in China, when everything is deep fried in beef tallow what more is there to say?
