What Should 'Occupy This Space:' Greenberry's

There has been a void in our coffee-loving hearts since January.

It came as a major shock to most when, in January, the brass at .

Since then, the former alternative to other coffee-centric businesses in town like , and, of course, , has lain fallow. Brown paper adorns the windows, as well as the final note to customers, written by owner Jason Czura:

"After being in business for over four years, we have had the privilege to befriend our loyal customers and grow to become Morristown’s neighborhood coffee shop. We got to know your personal stories, your family, friends and even your pets. We have hosted live entertainment on weekends, rotated exhibits of local artists and supported over 200 local churches, schools and non-profit organizations.

"Unfortunately, leasing complications and the weak economic climate is forcing our closure," Czura continued. "Greenberry’s would like to thank all of our customers for their loyal patronage over the years. We will miss the conversations and serving those in need of that morning cup of coffee to start their day."

Given the recent opening of Cafe on the Green–Greenberry's heir apparent–it remains to be seen what exactly may eventually "Occupy This Space." 

We want to know your thoughts.

A small restaurant offering something different/unique to the town, like crepes, would be great here. Yet with the spot on the corner of South & Park still empty, it could be tough to fill this great location.

We don't need any more food service store fronts. How about a book store or something like The Gap where things can be purchased.

Crepes? yea, they are delicious, but do you really think a Crepes restaurant will be able to afford the overhead of a storefront on the green? I would prefer true retail at this location....anything from men's or women's clothing, jewelry, shoes, gifts, cards, fine wines and cheeses, etc. We need another restaurant or bank like a whole in our collective heads.

I'd be so happy with a good card store and gift items. Bring back Jodo Gift Shop!

A combination of books, newspapers, magazines, food,drinks and even a bar would be great possibly at the corner and then there would be room for the overflow at the old Greenberrys spot.
