The empty storefront on the corner of Clifton and Grand in Clinton Hill has inspired speculation for months now. First of all, it appears to be landmarked. Also, it's recently developed some large, striking white-and-brown portraits in the windows. Residents whispered that it would be be a pizza place, a clothing store or "some type of business office," but now Lesterhead of Clinton Hill Blog hears it's going to be a bookstore. Her commenters seem to think the bodega that used to occupy the space once held Mexican wrestling tournaments. We quote: "That bookstore better hire some tough Lucha Librarians."
