Brooklyn Nibbles: South Brooklyn Edition

Bodhi Tree

A couple of new retail developments to report in Park Slope and on Court Street:

1) Park Slope residents will no longer have to travel elsewhere for their fix of Tibetan fashions and accessories. The Bodhi Tree is slated to open soon at 396 Sixth Avenue. It's named after a Pipal Tree at the western side of the Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya.

2) Another storefront that used to house a local business has come back in the form of a chain on Court Street. The UPS Store in the former location of the jewelry shop Henna K is now in its grand opening period.

3) Speaking of Court Street, our local correspondent reports that a fitness boom is underway. One has already been open for some time across the street from the Cobble Hill Cinema. Another is opening in the old music store that closed recently and a "fitness and yoga" enterprise is opening toward the Gowanus Expressway end of Court. Our correspondent notes that "Ominously, there's a small crucifix nailed to the front door (they're still renovating inside) but maybe that's just to rid the place of bad vibes."

Hmmm...The Bodhi Tree at 396 Sixth Avenue. Where's that? Hey, bloggers, how about giving a cross street? You know, for the benefit of people like me, who may have lived in the neighborhood for 37 years but still don't know how the numbers run on Sixth Avenue?
