Permanent Records

As you may remember, Greenpoint's Permanent Records lost their lease and have to be out of their current Franklin St. locale by the the end of September. The store has found a new location, they're going South (Slope that is). From their Facebook:

New digs will be housed within the swanky spaces of our equally fancy new friends, BrooklynWorks at 159, who selected us to be their only retail establishment. The new space, located at 159 20th St. in ______, -- Hmm, what IS that area called this week? South Slope? Greenwood Heights? Gowanus-lite? -- will offer up a unique and non-traditional retail experience. We hope you'll embrace its unconventionality with us.

Our Timeline:
8/25 - 9/15 - Business as usual at 181 Franklin St., regular store hours: 12-8, 7 days

9/16 - 9/30 - Transition time! We'll keep you posted as to the official last day on Franklin.

October 1 - OPEN FOR BUSINESS: 159 20th St., Brooklyn, NY 11232 (3rd & 4th Ave)

Greenpoint record buyers will have to hit the G Train to get to Permanent Records now, or maybe they'll just make do with Academy Annex, Captured Tracks, and Record Grouch. However, this is very good news for music lovers in Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Sunset Park, and South Brooklyn in general (maybe not great news for one of the last hold outs in the same area, Music Matters). We look forward to checking out the new location.

native NYer here and I grew up in that neighborhood - it was called Park Slope years ago until they decided to change the name like all the other places in the city

Brutal. Do they even have hummus that far south in Brooklyn?

Waste of time and space. They'll close inside five years.

If they last for five years, 60 months rent x say $3K a month = $180K wasted in rent.

$180K on rent alone.

Money ill-spent.
