LeNell’s Felled by Red Hook Development?

Red Hook residents have had plenty to fret over in the past few years: the loss of Lillies, the arrival of Ikea, the possible close of Barge, whatever's happening with 360 (currently closed with no sign of reopening), and of course the ball-field vendors and their permit issues. And now were told by employee Amanda Womack that LeNell's, the citys most eccentric liquor store (and arguably its bourbon mecca), is getting the boot from its landlord and looking for another location. We have a year, but were looking now. We can move as soon as we find a place. The question, then, is whether they're intent on staying in the neighborhood. Apparently not: We want to stay in Red Hook, Womack tells us, and well stay if we can. But theres not much available right now. Red Hook locals, we advise you to start stocking up on bourbon now.
