There does, however, seem to be quite a bit of activity in the neighborhood, according to Curbed, including possibly a McDonald’s or a Starbucks, neither of which would be welcome.
I’m sad to hear that Zipper is going, but I have to say that I’m not all that disappointed over the decline and fall of Village 247, where the food was uniformly bad — I once got served a semi-raw burger there.

Also nice, though hardly needed, is the news of a new French bistro opening to replace the OTB on Court. While this will eliminate the Corner of Life Cycles, where you could bank, eat, gamble and die, I admit that I am far more likely to visit a French bistro than an OTB.
