High in the sky, the Ashland reigns over Fort Greene’s Fulton Street. Down on street level, Greene Grape is royalty.

Food entrepreneur par excellence Amy Bennett has a supermarket called Greene Grape Provisions at 767-769 Fulton St. that’s stocked with gourmet goods like $6.59-per-pound heirloom tomatoes and Brooklyn Queen honey from Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Greene Grape Wine & Spirits is next door at 765 Fulton St.

At 753 Fulton St. on the corner of S. Portland Avenue, a coffee shop and bar called the Greene Grape Annex seems like it’s always filled with customers.

And an ice cream shop called Scoops at 680 Fulton St. is an outpost of Greene Grape.

The buildings in which the shops are situated belong to various landlords. We gleaned their names from city Finance Department records.

The buildings in which the grocery store is located, 767 and 769 Fulton, belong to Philip Myers.

Keith Utsey bought the low-rise building where the wine shop is located, 765 Fulton, from an estate for $205,000 on Feb. 9, 2001. That day, Utsey transferred ownership of the building to 765 Fulton Associates LLC.

The owner of 680 Fulton, the building where the ice cream parlor is located, is Fulton Street Associates. Its general partner, The Fulton Portland LLC, has Hesky Brahimy as a member.
