New Bike Shop on Van Brunt

The area around Columbia Street, west of Carroll Gardens, has needed a bike shop ever since the one on Union Street near Hick decamped for Court Street. Not it has one.

This sweet little shop opened last week in the ground-floor space of a lonely tenement on Van Brunt between President and Union Streets. (There are no other buildings on either side of it.) It's the first business in that building since forever.

It's run by a father and son. It's called Dog Day Cyclery. I'm happy to have them in the nabe. I was getting tired of trekking to Court Street every time I had a flat.

I like their old fashioned typeface. And although the colors seem garish at first, actually I find it cheerful looking.
