A reader has a genius idea for the next location of designer discounter Century 21, which just debuted its first Queens store. "If Century 21 opened in the Atlantic Terminal Mall in Brooklyn, I bet it would become the send most grossing store of all of them after Manhattan. That place would make BANK there! Surrounded by Ft. Greene, Park Slope, Downtown with the THOUSANDS of new people moving into those pricey condos along Flatbush, Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, etc." So true!
