Carroll Gardens Old Timers

New, 6 comments

2008_06_momandpop.jpgIt's lunchtime—take the nine minutes to watch this short film about old school mom-and-pop business and restaurants in Carroll Gardens. The owners of restaurants, coffee shops, and funeral homes that have been in the area for over 80 years bemoan the changes to the neighborhood (new condos, new neighbors, the loss of the Long Shoremen building) and reminisce about the good old days when 'everybody knew everybody'. A compelling take on how gentrification is changing the nabe. [MediaStorm]
