    Increasingly, my journeys into downtown Brooklyn from my home some blocks away are trips to an alien landscape…

  2. The building has already been leveled. The car wash across the street has also been boarded up for a while, I’d be curious to know what the development potential for that site is.

    I’ll pause for a moment to note the demolition of the Institute of Design and Construction building. The school was founded by Vito Batista, an activist, architect, and politician from the Cypress Hills, City Line, areas of Brooklyn, bordering Ozone Park, Queens, where I grew up. He was a neighborhood fixture, often manning tables for various causes. I was surprised to learn he was an MIT-trained architect.
