Brooklyn Nibbles: Huge Ricky’s Greenpoint Special

September 28th, 2007 · No Comments

So, what Brooklyn neighborhoods won’t have a Ricky’s outpost by this time next year? The big news out of Greenpoint yesterday–proclaimed in photos of signage–was that Ricky’s is opening a store on Manhattan Avenue. Our friends at Racked conveyed the news, noting that it will be a Halloween store and then open up as a regular Ricky’s by December. The inimitable New York Shitty, meanwhile, welcomed Ricky’s with open arms. She calls Ricky’s “a godsend to all Greenpointers who wish to shop for adult novelty items,” and said something about plugs. And, she wasn’t talking about earplugs. Just think of all the Brooklynites who won’t have to go to Manhattan anymore to buy, you know, whatever it is they were going there to buy that will no be on sale in Greenpoint. Interesting days in the world of North Brooklyn retail, people.
