Another bit of Williamsburg Brooklyn died on Sunday. While out for an enjoyable stroll on Bedford Anenue, I came across a "going out of business sale" for the Clovis Press Bookstore. This wonderful yet small and charming bookstore was like a local landmark for me on Bedford. You would never see a bookstore like this in Manhattan, and the shop is one of things that makes Williamsburg a special place to live (and one of the many reasons I moved). From what I understand their rent went up, and they had to close shop. Across the street a huge condo construction project is in the works too.
