You'd think that if any block on Brooklyn could support two bookstores, it would be on Park Slope's Seventh Avenue. Alas, both Park Slope Books and 7th Avenue Books on Seventh between 2nd and 3rd Streets have closed down in the past year. Now, Gowanus Lounge hears the latter will be replaced by a women's clothing store. No word on what it will be called or what sort of merchandise it will carry, though presumably we'll find out soon: It's due to open next month.
