He likes far fetched comparisons. For example, he stated that black men can't become the next Gates or Zuckerberg, but pretty much 99.9999999999999999999% of white man can't either.

It's in poor taste to open up a business in a community then mock the history (or the troubled past) of that community. If the people who live in the neighborhood are offended by it, then they are in their right to protest it.

Imagine the backlash if the owner opened up a 24/7 music blasting dope selling ice cream truck.

Well as we say here.......oh she ain't know? Well, she gon' learn today. Her idea was corny - she could have executed it in a cool way without offending everyone. And when I read an article about this matter - this was the stupidest comment of the century.....she says:

“We call it [a bullet hole-ridden wall] because if you look at the history, someone seriously said, 'Isn't that the place where we could buy guns? And then we were like, 'okay.'" (The “history” she refers to is an anonymous comment left on a community website post about the building.) Brennan defended this fictionalized historical narrative as, like the bathroom wallpaper, “cheeky.”

Who takes an anonymous online comment and runs with it. No fact checking at all? SMH stupid deserves whatever she gets...girl bye.

I lived up the street from here for many years, and when I can say St Marks is probably one of the safest corners on Nostrand Ave it is. The public library and Children's Museum is right up the street so foot traffic tends to be heavy on this block. What used to be here was a a regular Arab corner store. The owner and kids lived in the building above the store. Which again is just a regular prewar rent stabilized building. Each corner has a store, and out of any of them I would come here. Never had to worry about cigarette or weed smoke being blown in my face. He never had guys hanging out his his store making "transactions". He kept it that way cause lots of people would come in here after and before leaving the museum. The corner store a across the street was night & day, as they all are. He also owned the 99 a few doors down.
The area Nostrand Ave has changed tremendously since I've moved. So many new bars and restaurants have opened along the strip between Atlantic Ave & Eastern Parkway alone. The community has embraced them without a fight. I was just at happy hour at a bar on St Johns. The crowd was mixed and enjoyable. Now this new place here just took it left.. I see why the community is outraged. I honestly don't see the place lasting long with other new establishments in the area that didn't need a phony glorified ghetto theme attached to it.

Well said and the fact that you know the area and store personally make this the best post so far! I am shocked that this business owner actually thought this was a cute idea. She must be off. I mean when a person travels to another country don't they research the culture at least a little? Are you telling me she didn't ask anyone what they thought of her "idea". I suspect she doesn't have any "real" friends. Cause girlllllll...... somebody should have told you! Honestly the whole theme is just corny...and stupid, I don't care who or what came up with it. She needs to have several seats.
