Bklink: Remembering the Dry Cleaner

Probably no neighborhood dry cleaner in Brooklyn has closed with more public notice and mourning than Trusting Cleaners on Court Street. The shop closed on March 15 and today about 250 people are expected for a farewell party at the Kane Street Synagogue. The Oh family was in business for 25 years. They had to close because the landlord jacked up the rent from $2,500 per month to $6,000, which a representative of the property owner called "a good offer." The Ohs operated the shop for about 12 hours a day, six days a week. They will be missed by many people. It is safe to say the landlord is not much loved in the neighborhood.--NYT; previous GL Coverage

Hopefully, the Oh family will relocate to another place, not too far away.

With support like that, I bet more than a few people would follow them to another neighborhood if it came to that.
