Open em Shut em
There have been a number of new businesses on the horizon, while a number of old-ish business have disappeared in the meantime. Two businesses in the Hamilton Heights area that are trading off are two small restaurants. Oklahoma Smoke was located on 145th Street near 8th Avenue. Oklahoma Smoke tried to hold on but just couldn’t keep their business going after about 2.5 years in business. They started out strong but as time went on they started to slack off with quality and service.
About a block away on 7th Avenue near 145th Street the long awaited Cheesesteak Factory has finally opened for business.
What are some new or shuttered businesses in your area?
