I walked by the old Renaissance Pharmacy, which closed its doors some months ago, and noticed a work order in the window and some activity inside. The Carroll Gardens store was one of the last independent pharmacies in the Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill area.
A clerk at the neighboring Caputo Bakery (long make it bake) said the space was to become a spa. Sigh. Like th neighborhood needs another spa. "Well, they think it does," said the clerk, resigned. Yeah. Like Smith Street needs another restaurant.
