TD Bank Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn

Ever since Kentucky Fried Chicken closed down in April, neighbors have been abuzz about what might move in to its 2940 Avenue U digs. Would it be a Starbucks? A bookstore? Perhaps, as the boys at Brennan & Carr fear, a McDonalds?

Nope, nope and nope. It’ll be a TD Bank.

The last remnants of KFC were removed yesterday as the entire structure was demolished to make way for the bank.

According to Department of Buildings filings, the newest outpost of TD Bank will have a one-story building taking up just under 3,000 square feet of the property. It’s really just a small chunk compared to the lot’s 10,260 total square feet, which will be occupied by a 13-car parking lot.

A representative for the property confirmed that “America’s Most Convenient Bank” would take the space, noting that the lease was signed about a year ago – long before the KFC shuttered. He said he was not sure when construction would be completed or the bank would be open for business.

Is TD Bank going to be a good neighbor? What businesses would you like to see in that area?

Sorry, lovers of greasy fried chicken and unconscionably decadent “sandwiches” – but our closest outlet to the Colonel’s special recipe is now shuttered.

Kentucky Fried Chicken at 2940 Avenue U (off the corner of Nostrand Avenue) closed for good yesterday. A banner hung from the establishment’s roof announcing that the location was permanently closed “due to lease expiration.”

This has us feeling a little bit like Kenny, but maybe a medicinal marijuana shop can open up and we’ll all bounce around on our hoppity-hop balls. Or maybe we’ll begin smuggling some into the neighborhood. Or maybe – well, more like “probably” – we’ll go to Chicken Masters and support a local business.

Yep. We just watched a whole bunch of South Park and got to call it “work.” Jealous much?
