Walking down Smith Street the other day we were seeing so many shuttered doors and papered windows. Shops come and go on this bustling street spanning from Cobble Hill to Carroll Gardens. One particular darkened space felt a bit like a punch in the gut, though. Our last neighborhood video store, Video Free Brooklyn, has moved. So many residents will miss this shop. The feeling browsing and renting there was a personal one. Very informative suggestions were made from behind the counter tailored to the individual’s taste, or at least that’s how it felt if you were a “regular”.
This is good news for anyone living over by their new location (445 Albee Square at the Alamo Drafthouse) or to the very loyal customers willing to walk a little. They are still just a mile away!
