  1. Farewell to the caskets.

  2. I’m not sure if this is a done deal until the city council passes the disasterous Gowanus rezoning.
    if so , there goes the low rise neighborhood and the south Brooklyn Casket company who also sold their properties across the street
    I’m praying it won’t be another out of context glass box.

  3. We will see if these so called “affordable housing” units will be at the usual 130% of Ami meaning only available to those making $100,000 or more.
    Why don’t they tell the truth and say “income linked or income based apartments not bull “affordable housing”

  4. WTF ! 72 parking spaces included.
    Just what this area needs , more congestion and more cars??
