News that a Target is taking aim at Bensonhurst, and of the possibility of a marijuana dispensary for Sunset Park were two of ten top stories of the week in Brooklyn.

Barely a month after news broke that 18th Avenue’s Annie Sez and Mandee stores would close for good, Target announced on Wednesday, February 1 that it will be bringing a “flexible-format store” to the pair’s former over-20,000-square-foot space, located at 6401 18th Avenue.

The new single-level store is projected to open in October of this year, following quickly on the heels of the January opening of a brand new Target in downtown Brooklyn’s City Point.

Meanwhile, earlier that morning, news broke that the first ever marijuana dispensary has been proposed for Sunset Park.

Napenthea LLC made a presentation at Community Board 7 on Monday, January 30 to discuss its proposal to bring a medical marijuana facility to 4614 Fifth Avenue, where it currently has a pending lease.

Here are 8 other top stories of the week in Brooklyn:
