New Tattoo Shop on Court.

At the far south end of Court Street in Carroll Gardens stands a storefront that’s now called Nice Tattoo.  The exterior is a lovely color blue and it looks clean and simple.  493 Court Street used to be a barber shop so you would think the transformation shouldn’t have been too difficult.  Nice Tattoo looks […]

Painted Swan on Court Street.

It’s quite a sign of the times in a neighborhood when a Chinese fast food restaurant is replaced with an upscale home goods boutique.  The whole corner of Court Street and 2nd Place, where the store Painted Swan now resides, has undergone a transformation.  Not just the exterior of the corner storefront has changed but the front of […]

New Pediatric Dentist on Court Street.

The space at 396 has undergone a major transformation recently and it’s a hard one to miss with the bright orange sign indicating that a new pediatric dentist has moved in.  The space had been a long-time card and gift shop as well as a sneaker and clothing boutique called Brooklynite.  With the large amount […]

Via Roma Pizza Bar Open on Court.

The space at 445 Court Street in Carroll Gardens is looking a lot sleeker than it has in years but it’s still serving up the same type of food…pizza!  Formerly Vinny’s Pizzeria, the current tenants at this storefront have done a nice job of revamping the outside and inside of the new Via Roma Pizza Bar. […]

New Bar on Court Street.

We passed a bar at 517 Court Street that we’d never seen (or never noticed) before called The Watershed.  It’s quite large so we assumed we’d have noticed it before.  As you can see in the photo it’s the storefront of a new building and has nice big windows spanning the whole space. You can […]

A new(ish) ice cream spot has opened on Court Street in the old Blue Marble space.  It’s called Blossom and it’s not only delicious but also very unique.  If you notice in the pic above the ice cream is rolled up like little wraps.  What happens is you pick your flavor (key lime pie for […]

PDR, a Private Dining Room on Court Street.

We passed by the space at 487 Court Street recently and it looked very different to us.  Naturally Delicious Catering Company has been at this space for a little while now but it looks like the space connected to it has become a private dining room, called PDR.  They call themselves a boutique caterer and […]

Brooklyn Fox Lingerie on Court Street.

This adorable little shop has been at 177 Court Street in Cobble Hill since the Fall but we recently stopped in to chat and snap a picture of the interior (below).  The woman we spoke with was very warm and friendly and the atmosphere inside was inviting and luxurious.  Not too many lingerie boutiques in […]
