WILLIAMSBURG—The Moore Street Market, a public indoor shopping space, has escaped gentrification for years because it sits so far east, but it's also been under constant threat of closing because it doesn't make any money (which is, of course, the problem with escaping gentrification.) Now, after a prolonged fight, the city has agreed to give the market a five-year lease, provided it gets its financial act together. [NY Times]

BOERUM HILL—Yesterday's Street Scenes subject plugged his place of employ, Brooklyn Circus, but he didn't mention that it's expanding. The streetwear store just opened a bigger space on Nevins and Bergen. They'll celebrate with a BYO party tomorrow from 7pm—11pm at which "shopping with special privileges will be allowed."
