Throwback Thursday: Corner of Clinton & Myrtle Avenue

Thu, Mar 5th, 2015

419 Myrtle Avenue 1999

Corner of Myrtle and Clinton Avenues in 1999. Today, you’ll find Putnam’s Pub and Cooker in this corner spot.

If you walk past the corner of Myrtle and Clinton Avenues today in Clinton Hill, you’ll find the popular bar and restaurant Putnam’s.  The pub sits in a beautifully restored building, with apartments on the upper-floors.  Sixteen years ago, the building was in a very different state, as this 1999 photo shows.  The building’s only tenant was the corner grocery while the upper-floors sat empty.

Putnam’s, which opened in 2011, is gearing up for their annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration.  Their two-day celebration will include FREE oysters, live music, Irish dancing, and plenty of traditional Irish dishes.  Click here to check out all of the details.
