People looking for some cheap hot coffee while waiting in line for some Di Fara Pizza (1424 Avenue J) this winter have a new place to visit. A brand new 7-Eleven has opened at 1523 Avenue J at the corner of East 16th Street in Midwood.

Cafe 16 previously occupied the spot right next to the stairs that lead up to the Manhattan bound Q trains. Thanks to 5301 Fishbowl for posting the image on the subchat message boards.

Bagels R Us, the newest bagel joint at 1424 Sheepshead Bay Road

There’s a new bagel place in the ‘hood.

A couple of tipsters – okay, I was one of them – alerted us to the brand new sign installation of Bagels R Us, including an anonymous tipster who sent in the above photo. The new bagel establishment replaces the slightly more than two-years-old Jonathan’s Bakery at 1424 Sheepshead Bay Road.

Jonathan’s Bakery – the evolution of the previously named  Dish D’lish, the bagel store that replaced Bagel Stop back in January 2010, and named after the owner’s son Jonathan – was the third establishment in that location offering the esteemed and enviable New York bagel, and is right around the corner from the competing Bagel Boy at 1602 Avenue Z.

If you’ve already stopped in to sample the doughy fare of Bagels R Us, let us know what you think in the comments.

In the meantime, we wish them the best of luck.

Skate shop Common Ground opened at 3105 Coney Island Avenue.

Aside from decks and all the trimmings, they offer “footwear staples such as Adidas, Converse, Supra and Vans,” as well as time-tested skate brand favorites like Stussy, Obey, Diamond, Patagonia and more.

Skate, don’t walk, and check out the new neighborhood shop.

The old Nature’s Emporium corner location at 1601 Kings Highway is now a 1/2 Price Outlet store. It’s fair to say that now Kings Highway has more clothing stores than humans. Soon, humans will have more clothing than they need. Wait…

1/2 Price Outlet, welcome to the neighborhood!
