The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the Building Housing the Rainbow Cafe a venerable institution of our neighborhood which has been closed for over a year has been sold for 1.65 million. The Rainbow which used to be a venerable hangout of longtime residents and a place where some rock bands got their start was reportedly purchased by a local investor. Perhaps the new owner will do something with the building. I hope it is not torn down and replaced by a condo as appears to be the pattern and fate of many other buildings in the nabe.
