Last week we posted about a vacant storefront that we misidentified as being on the corner of Flatbush and Chester Ct. It is actually on the corner of Flatbush and Beekman, one block closer to Lincoln Rd. A commenter, who spoke to the workmen in the space, confirmed that the storefront will soon be home to a Subway.
After pondering the imminent Subway for a day or two, we've come to think that having a Subway in the nabe won't be such a bad thing. At first we were disappointed that a big chain was coming in, but we'll admit it: we like Subway. The veggie burger thing thing that they have is quite good, and some Subways even have full blown salads. For us, Subway is not a bad option when in a pinch.
Subway will not be an addition to the nabe along the lines of K-Dog or Enduro, but anything that's not a nail or hair salon is a welcome addition.
