Newkirk Cafe will be Vox Pop II (via Ditmas Park Blog)
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I never made it to Vox Pop before it closed. Raphe lived in the neighborhood for over a year before closing time and we never stepped foot in the neighborhood coffee establishment. In fact, the day we decided to give it a shot was the day that a group of devoted customers were sharing the last cup of Vox Pop coffee outside of the closed café. Patronizing the new café on Newkirk will never really make up for this, but such a new café in the spirit of Vox Pop surely deserves lots of neighborhood support.
