Greenpoint closings

Adelina’s Will Permanently Close in August

Adelina’s (159 Greenpoint Ave.) will close permanently in August.

Buggiani setup direct ordering on Adelina’s website in May to remedy the third-party fees, but the mounting losses from a lack of indoor business coupled with limited street dining options in front of a bus stop on Greenpoint Avenue are forcing the closure, according to a statement posted on social media:

Northern Territory Will Not Reopen This Year

Northern Territory Rooftop

This past November, we announced that Northern Territory would be hibernating for the winter and planned to reopen this Spring (as in now) for their final year at the corner of Franklin and Meserole Avenue before the building is razed for new development. Sadly, Nothern Territory will remain officially closed.

Why the sudden change of plans? Even though their lease is up at the end of the year, Northern Territory “came to an agreement with the new landlord” to be out in a few months and make way for the seven-story office and manufacturing building that is slated to be built. Continue reading
