While it's not Thursday, I think a 'throw back' photo is worthy today as it marks the two year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. We lost everything two years ago today. Our space took in over 5 feet of water; one can only imagine what that does to equipment, inventory and more importantly human spirits. We are up and running, better than ever....thank you all! Come see us at the BKG Retail Shop in Clinton Hill (557 Myrtle Ave - Btw Classon & Emerson) Below are two photos from that day (note the water line in the 2nd photo)
