Park Deli (209 Nassau Ave.) is open again after closing last week following an inspection by the Dept. of Health.
A January 16th DOH inspection resulted in a series of marks for unsanitary conditions in the food preparation area that have since been rectified.
A follow-up DOH inspection on Wednesday cleared the way for the reopening today.
Owner Krystyna Godawa and the deli are widely considered neighborhood treasures, and the Park Deli was rescued from closure in 2017 after the landlord raised the rent by more than double. The Park Deli lives on!

Last Saturday the Brooklyn Diggers held a fun and educational event in Winthrop Park to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the U.S.S. Monitor, built in Greenpoint, during the Civil War. Awesome Greenpoint photographer Emily Raw set up a daguerrotype photo booth. Subjects got dressed up and posed for a few moments, but when these kinds of photographs were taken back then, the long exposures lasted for many minutes. To keep subjects still, Emily explained, their necks were held in place by a metal brace. That sounds delightful! Emily left the brace at home that day, unfortunately. There are a lot more from this awesome set here. More about the Brooklyn Diggers here. Emily Raw’s website.
