Retail Vacancies Abound near the Bedford Avenue L Stop

Does “L-mageddon already has a prime span of Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue in its grip”?

A lot of the examples shown around Bedford and North 7th have been vacant or under-rented for ages. Add to this the long-standing shittyness of this stretch of Bedford and the insanely high rents, and I’m a bit skeptical that this is all about the L train. But it sure doesn’t help.
