Work Underway on Hoyt Street Oyster Bar of Doom

August 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment

The Jim Mamary oyster bar on Hoyt Street that sparked on of the most vitriolic Carroll Gardens fights in recent memory (over a business) is making progress. A special GL Correspondent braved yesterday’s heat and humidity to catch some shots of the work underway at the controversial establishment near Union Street.

    As a resident on floor two of 303 Hoyt St., we’d like to voice our opinion that this bar would be completely destructive to the quality of life of this neighborhood.

    The wine bar on the corner of Hoyt and Union (directly below us), is a complete nuisance. We are constantly battling with them about noise, they continually stay open, or at least operating, until 2 or 3AM in the morning, with music blasting. Our 2 year old can not sleep, and is sometimes forced to stay awake all night, until 3 or 4AM when he finally gets enough quiet to sleep. This is completely unfair, and being that this new business will be under the same ownership, very telling of things to come.

    The owner, James, continually ignores our complaints, doesn’t return our calls, and apparently doesn’t give a shit about what his employees are doing after the bar is closed. We’ve been physically threatened by bartenders after asking them to turn the music down, and now we will be surrounded.

    Please help us in fighting this unwelcome addition to a quiet family street.
