Freddy’s, basically the last business still operating in the Atlantic Yards footprint and a recent recipient of an L Magazine bar award, was served its 30-day eviction notice last week. According to the Voice, after what will likely have been the final appeal against the eminent domain land-grab was denied, Bruce Ratner’s arena and condo construction project is due to break ground on March 11, and Freddy’s will have until the beginning of April to evict their premises at 485 Dean Street. Hey, let’s all go get drunk and pass out in front of bulldozers!
