The new shop housed inside of the historic Gage & Tollner space in Downtown Brooklyn is almost making its previous tenant Arby's look good. The discount jewelry store, Ladies and Gents, opened earlier this summer, and now the NY Post reports that they've brought in hot pink walls.
The Landmark Preservation Commission isn't happy about the 119-year-old building, which still has its original gas-lit chandeliers, getting such a colorful makeover. Last week inspectors served the operators of the store a notice for illegally installing pink partitions just inches away from the original walls. They have until next week to take them down, or else they'll be fined.
Later this year you'll be able to see Gage & Tollner in its old school, mobster glory when it's featured on Boardwalk Empire.
