Eleven 2 Eleven Boutique: Being Forced Out

I was very depressed to hear that one of my favorite local shops Eleven 2 Eleven Boutique is being forced to close due to a greedy landlord. The shop is located at 349 Union Avenue, and to the north there's a huge building boom going on which is pushing up the greed factor.

Earlier this year Stay Gold gallery which was only a few blocks away was forced to close for similar reasons. What's sad to me is that uncorporate shops like Eleven 2 Eleven are why I love Williamsburg, and if anything making sure shops like this stick around will improve the value of the real estate by making Williamsburg an enjoyable place to live. It's a good example of short sided thinking.

Show your support for the locals and visit the shop by the weekend!
