    Moe's in Fort Greene is Closing

    Now this is really sad news.

    http://gothamist.com/2010/11/05/is_m...ne_closing.php

    Earlier today, Brooklyn Based tweeted a single, despondent line: "Moe's Bar in Fort Greene is closing in February." The folks at Brooklyn Based heard the news via a Facebook message sent to fans of the bar's page, which has produced several comments of customers' despair on Moe's wall. When we called, a man who identified himself as Sec told us he wasn't "at liberty to disclose Moe's plans as of now." But minutes later Ruby Lawrence, one of the bar's owners, posted this conclusive answer: "Our lease is up and we can't afford the outrageous rent increase."

    Gothamist will mourn the loss of this Fort Greene standby, where happiness was always just a flaming Moe away, and the diverse crowd kept the place equal parts laid back and off-beat. But we fear poor Barney Gumble's going to take this even harder.

    Ha ha ha, damn!

    No more awful loud music, bar tenders that take a half a lifetime to get you a drink, interracial pickups, and the shitty fake Irish pub across the street with those stupid-ass Tvs and fat ugly gals at the bar all night is all thatís left.

    This is like the world ending, forrealzio.

    No one can afford Fort Green anymoreÖas in LATE. How I live a half block away from Moe's is a very puzzling thing.

    You's a funny dude! I agree though, there are way too many things going on in THAT area for anyone to really miss Moe's...

    By the way, there were four robberies in the last month in my old building alone (at least two, the guys were packing heat) and at least four muggings of women on Adelphi where the perp not only mugs the women but gropes them.

    Hope these white folks like Fort Greene.

    And black men better be careful. There are undercovers everywhere right now with an itch to catch these people, which, as you know, means a lot of harassment for young innocent black males who happen to be walking around at night.

    Funny thing is for the 15+ years I lived in the area,despite the Ft Greene rep all trouble seemed to stay in or near the PJs and even that wasn't common

    Lafayette, Gates, always problems. My hypothesis, and thatís all it is, is that the Whitmanís, PJs and what not finally got privy to all the white folks moving in and moved the crime up to Dekalb and Lafayette. The new folk are suckers. Always gabbing on their cellphones not paying attention to a thing around them. But pure speculation.

    The cops are saying crime has increased 25% in the last few months. We are, however, in a depression.
