Crown Heights Animal Hospital Aims for March 4 Opening

The Crown Heights Animal Hospital at 753 Franklin (a branch of the Prospect Heights Animal Hospital on Flatbush) is aiming to open this Monday, March 4, according to some folks inside the store earlier this week. They'll be happy to serve all your beloved mammalian friends, as well as exotic pets of all species. 

In other new business news, one announcement at the last CHCA was that we will soon have another coffee shop on the Avenue, this one at St. Marks and Franklin. The owners seem like very nice folks, and weathered the audible groans at the announcement of another coffee shop with aplomb. No word on the exact location or planned opening date.

Finally, with respect to the CHCA Town Hall Meeting, ILFA can confirm that the Saturday, March 23 event will be the first of a few meetings, and that following meetings will take place on other days so as to accommodate those who can't attend on Saturday.

  1. Really, an audible groan? So they would rather we have empty store fronts on Franklin Avenue instead of a business? Personally I'm glad--I live off Dean Street and we haven't seen any development down this way. Maybe those groaning should get off their butts and start whatever businesses they want to see in the neighborhood.

  3. So happy to welcome CH Animal Hospital to the neighborhood! We've been trekking over to their PH location for years and they are great, reliable vets.

  4. There's actually been a lot of development over the past 4 years off of Franklin towards Fulton, but it's development that speaks to an African immigrant population rather than the kind of people who read I Love Franklin Ave. Still, it's worth noting that there is a very Williamsburg-esque coffee shop at Franklin & Fulton now, Daily Press.

    I like coffee shops personally. They foster community, and I like good coffee. Most parts of Manhattan have none, which is why Manhattan sucks now. Park Slope has more coffee shops than we do though, even with the new batch.

  5. As far as the audible groans go, I completely understand. Anything that's a bar or coffee shop at this point seems unnecessary. The stretch of Franklin b/w Eastern Pkwy and Atlantic is not in dire need of either, this coming from someone who drinks both coffee and beer often. I'm not anti any of these business, but Franklin is established now. Let's have a little diversity
