When one door closes, another door opens. Pitas and Sticks, a “fast casual Greek grill” is on its way to the former Atomic Wings space at 321 9th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues). Owner John Stamos (no, not that one) tells us that, in addition to a selection of draught beers, the new restaurant

Have you had a chance to stop by the recently renovated Steve’s 9th Street Market (AKA Steve’s C-Town)? As previously reported by both F*cked In Park Slope and Here’s Park Slope, the new signage is suspiciously Union Market-ish with its olive and black design. That said, we’re digging the new interior. They’ve opened up the

Ever wondered what New York life was like in the earlier part of the 20th Century? The Roaring Twenties, a new collaboration between historian/author/Princeton professor Emily Thompson and designer/USC program creative director Scott Mahoy, can at least give you a better idea of how it sounded. Thompson and Mahoy plotted NYC noise complaints from the 1920s until 1933 on an

Fatty Daddy Taco opened the doors to their 9th Street (between 4th and 5th Avenue) restaurant Thursday night, and by lunchtime Friday, neighbors were pouring in to give the area’s newest Mexican food joint a spin. Of course, this transplant Texan was among those stopping by, and decided to start with a grilled steak ($3.50) and

Before the towering YMCA building was built on 9th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue, a collection of wood-frame homes stood. The above photograph, dated December 16, 1914 by the Brooklyn Public Library, shows 351, 353, and 355 9th Street, which were all purchased by the YMCA in order to make room for their new building.

Since this cool weather arrived, we’ve been on a huge chicken and rice kick. A friend recommended checking out El Viejo Yayo 2 (9th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue), so we recently stopped by. Their chicken and rice dish ($9.95) arrived in a huge pot, and was probably large enough for the entire table to

Last week’s photo flashback was all about the RKO Prospect Theatre, so we’re going to continue with that theme and travel about a block down the slope to remember the Avon. Located on 9th Street, between 4th and 5th Avenue, the Avon Theatre was also built in 1914, but was significantly smaller and far less glamorous

Fall weather always makes us gravitate toward the neighborhood’s warm and cozy lunch options. After walking passed the halal cart on 5th Avenue and 9th Street for the 6,345th time (and thinking how good it smelled), it was time to give it a go. We’re so glad we did. For $6, we walked aways with
