The new Black Horse Pub, in the South Slope, at 16th and Fifth Avenue, has been under construction for some time. All things looks ready to go inside. And a blackboard on the wall says the bar will open in two weeks time.
What's most important, however, in our Lost City way of looking at things, is that the new business seems to be retaining the old Berkley Coats sign, which has been hanging on the building for God knows how long. If the bar was planning on taking the beautifully bedraggled thing down, they would have done so by now.
