Brownstoner reports that Prospect Heights’ beloved, displaced-by-Atlantic-Yards bar Freddy’s will reopen at the beginning of February, at its new location on Fifth Avenue between 16th and 17th in the South Slope.

It’ll feature “the original prohibition era red mahogany bar, the old booths and tables, and a few special items” from the old neighborhood spot, on Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, which it vacated at the end of last April, so that Bruce Ratner could continue to promise to someday build a housing development there, just as soon as the economy improves.
