Despite a hasty retreat in response to community opposition, tempers are still aflame and residents remain concerned over the potential opening of a new bar rumored to be a front for an “adult business” at a busy Gravesend intersection less than a block from multiple schools and a neighborhood park.
“It’s outrageous,” said local resident Tom Sajecki, whose daughter attends P.S. 215, just one block from the location. “You have not one, not two, but three schools within walking distance. If the city allows this, it’s beyond comprehension.”
