The "For Rent" sign is still attached to the fence in front of 3021 Fort Hamilton Parkway, but until a long-term tenant is found, the storefront will temporarily function as a gallery named "Fort Hamilton."

The current exhibit is "Silhouettes," curated by Christopher Aque and Anissa Mack and featuring Becca Albee, Lucas Blalock, Daniel Bozhkov, Carter, Steffani Jemison, Em Rooney, Lauren Silva, Matt Taber, and Carmen Winant. The show opened on May 18th and will run through June 16th. Open hours are Saturdays and Sundays, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The building, located between E. 2nd and E. 3rd streets in Windsor Terrace, was purchased by the Chaousy family in the 1950s. They ran Chaousy's Pharmacy in the storefront. 

Then it became Miss Janet's Dance Studio, fondly remembered by long-time residents until that moved to Church and E. 4th, and then it was Zyl-Art, where eyeglasses and sunglasses got decorated. That was until the mid-1990s.

Last May, a family member sold the building to Richard A. Prins.
