Some Work at Tripoli


Tripoli, the grand old mainstay on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, is having a little work down. A number of laborers were hard at work chipping away at the facade this weekend. Seems the place, which never had an awning, is getting a new awning. I kinda like it the way it is. An awning might obscure the quasi-majestic frontage.

You're absolutely right! I just walked by Tripoli and discovered that they were putting in the awning recently too. The place was uniquely recognizable before and this is just unfortunate...

Bad Decision Trip, bad decision!
