According to this sign, the contents of the vacant lot at Bergen and Franklin are for sale, though in all the times I've passed since the sign went up last week, I haven't seen a single salesperson, transaction, or even so much as a sign of life (save for the sign, which is fading rapidly). Still, if you're looking for a dilapidated Lincoln Town Car or Ford Thunderbird, or maybe an old trailer or two, you've come to the right place. I wonder if this means new construction?
Also, the first-ever I Love Franklin Avenue Poetry Contest, made possible by product-rec website Snubbr, has been extended through the weekend, with the winner to be notified on Monday. We've only got five entries, folks, which means this contest is still wide-open. Call upon the muse, sing of arms and the man (and Franklin Ave.), and win yourself a FREE $50 gift certificate to Coldstone! We're not looking for stunning literary achievement here (though if you've got it, flaunt it), but merely some reflections in verse on one hot Crown Heights summer.
