How the Tables Have Turned

2009_11_brooklynbrewery.jpgThanks to the recession, Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg was finally able to expand in its own neighborhood, an outcome that wasn't so certain two years ago: "'They were all hoping to get the next bowling alley or boutique hotel or Whole Foods or a bank,' Mr. Hindy recalled. Indeed, a hotel is being built across the street from the brewery, and the bowling alley-nightclub has opened next door. But the boom that spawned those concerns ended with the implosion of New York’s financial industry last year." [NYT]
