Yea, Where is the F
It is on such a nasty block they filmed a scene from Goodfellas there
"Karen’s edgy meeting with the increasingly paranoid Conway was filmed on Smith Street at 9th Street, alongside the Gowanus Canal, under the elevated railway F Line in Brooklyn’s dodgy Red Hook district."
When I grew up, I was told the only reason to get off the train at Smith & 9th was to buy smack. A friend of mine worked on that block a mere 10 yeas ago and told me she would never eat there because SHE WOULD NEVER LEAVE FOR LUNCH.
The neighborhood has changed and F Line bagels was helping make it change. The MTA sued them for theft of intellectual property. WTF, there are not stealing you name they are honoring you as a neighbor. Two years ago they turned the F around in their store name. There is no F any more, now they are called Line Bagels.
Anyway, I got my favorite bagel combination there; an everything with nothing. I will also get lunch for the family there next time we go the the Red Hook Pool. Here is there menu, they deserve our patronage
What the Fuck
