Wendy's Closed. Is Homogeny taking root in Greenpoint.

I was in Greenpoint just last weekend. Went to my favored dive, in the direction of Queens on Manhattan. That is not the point. The point is that Wendy's was closed. It was a Saturday night. It was something in the hours near 8 pm.

Wendy's is a Polish venue just west, Manhattan and Greenpoint. The juke box has great Polish music.

123 Greenpoint Avenue

I fear that like so many other areas, that this may be a slow receding (euphemism.....crushing is more like it) of the originary local establishments, as cookie cutter venues open up.

The cookie cutter, well, the same types of places, one finds in Park Slope, Cobble Hill, areas of other cities in other states.

Basically, unlike these originary establishments, one can find similar or same experience where ever one might be.

Wendy's has been said by adventurers into the Polish community of Greenpoint, to be similar to a social club. The atmosphere was quite a difference that one could step in, from time to time, or often.

Homogeny, is it taking root?
