What's going on at the Trader Joe's site in Brooklyn? There has yet to be any real progress made on the grocery store, which was confirmed for the borough back in June. We dropped by the space on Atlantic Avenue and Court Street yesterday and were disappointed to note that it looked just as it did when we peeked in in September (dusty, empty, silent). Has the deal, as was rumored a few weeks ago, gone sour somehow? If you've got any intel on this one, feel free to drop us a line.
