Christie's Jamaican Patties Still in the Fight

News broke a couple weeks ago that local favorite Christie's Jamaican Patties, which has been churning out some truly delicious Jamaican cuisine on northern Flatbush Avenue since 1965, was slated for closure at the end of the month. I had a chat with owner Paul Hayes earlier this morning, and he assured me that they're not going down without a fight.

"We're going to court on the 16th," he told me. "It's usually not a good sign when it goes to court, but I know I can win, and I'm hoping we don't get that far."

The landlord, Lina Feng, is demanding higher rent, and it's been month to month since the lease expired back in April. "I owe her some money, but I have $20,000 that I've been trying to give her. Now she tells me that I also owe $50,000 in taxes. I'm hoping that she will take the $20,000 when I see her next week and we can avoid the courts, because if that happens only the lawyers will be the winners."

Stay tuned...
