Recent Changes Along Fifth

We took a long walk along Fifth Avenue this past week to double-check our list of businesses along the avenue, in preparation for the new printed All About Fifth Guide. The guide is going to print at the end of the month and will be distributed for free in storefronts and hotels in the area this fall. Anyway, here are some of the changes we found along Fifth:
  • Dr Brendan, an Apple computer and device repair shop, celebrated its grand opening on Saturday. The new space is located at 171 Fifth Avenue, in the former Madison Rose Maternity space.
  • A new toy store called Bubblez opened up at 347a Fifth Avenue. Learn more about it from Here's Park Slope.
  • The NG Designer Shoes space at 586 Fifth Avenue seems to be acting as some sort of mattress showroom, although no information was posted on the windows at the time
  • A new bar called Uncle Barry's is opening at 58 Fifth Avenue. Any bar that is located near the future nets arena is likely to be in a good position to do well. Good timing!
  • A sign was posted in the former Blockbuster Video site (550 Fifth Avenue), announcing that a Ricky's was moving into the space, soon. Not sure if the sign mentioned if it was a pop-up store or a permanent location. Anyone know?
  • And, of course, Filfila Falafel opened in the space formerly known as Pita Hut (310 9th Street, near Fifth Avenue). We're looking forward to trying it for lunch!
